KTRK-TV Houston, TX / By Christi Myers

-- October 23 2013

Reporter Christi Myers shared the story of 3-year-old Kate Boggan and her family, who were finally able to thank the 26-year-old California man, Lance McDaniels, who donated bone marrow to save Kate's life. The story shared that Kate is doing well today, and was thrilled to finally meet Lance in person. The first-time meeting took place at Be The Match's Annual Council Meeting in Minneapolis on Oct. 19. Her little brother, Will, was born with the same genetic disorder and, after having a donor back out, finally had a transplant in June. The family is grateful for donors like Lance, who didn't think twice about saving Kate's life.
