Reporter Malia Zimmerman featured an article about umbilical cord blood donation leading up to Mother’s Day. The article covered Hawaii mom Jayna Guillermo’s decision to donate her daughter’s cord blood. This painless, free process, Guillermo reasoned, was one way her family could help others. Zimmerman, a long time Hawaii journalist and founder of the Hawaii Reporter, recently donated bone marrow to a stranger battling a blood disorder and has been inspired to help further awareness, particularly about the need for more diverse donors on the registry.
