Benjamin Prueter, an undergraduate engineering management student from Overland Park, Kan., is trying to find a bone marrow donor to save the life of his mother, Kris Miner. For the past 10 years, she has been battling a form of cancer called Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma, which has transformed into Stage 4B Large Cell Lymphoma.

“For my mom, there is only one known treatment: a stem cell and bone marrow transplant,” Prueter says. “Out of the 17 million registered donors in the National Bone Marrow Registry, there is currently not a match for her. We have just 7 to 9 weeks to find a match to save her life.”
To join the National Marrow Bone Registry, go to join.marrow.org/krisminer. You can also learn more about Kris Miner and her battle against cancer at kris-miner.com/ or at www.facebook.com/TeamKrisMiner.
