Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown, who learned last year that his daughter has leukemia, and his family are hosting a registration drive for bone marrow donations next week.
The drive will take place Feb. 14 at Children’s Medical Center hospitals.
Malena Brown, 15, has chronic myeloid leukemia. The Cowboys said the Browns are trying to find an unrelated bone marrow donor for her and other children suffering from cancer and blood disorders.
The family is working with BeTheMatch.org. Potential donors are encouraged to register at www.childrens.com/bethematch if they cannot register at the hospital. Using the promo code “children’s” allows registrants a chance to have a free test kit sent to their homes.
Malena’s leukemia was diagnosed shortly after Brown joined the staff a year ago.
