Simple test could lead to saving a life

If you live in the Dallas area, consider setting aside time Sunday to try to save Karen Mellow Stock's life.

Karen is a 1986 graduate of W.T. White High School. (Steve graduated in '87, his brother Jim in '84.) She was diagnosed in December with lymphoma and needs a bone marrow transplant.

She doesn't yet have the perfect matching donor, so she and her family are trying to find one.

Visit NorthPark Center in Dallas between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday for a quick swab of the inside of your mouth. Your DNA will be tested to see if your bone marrow can help save Karen.
