Hundreds of San Diegans volunteer to donate bone marrow to 3-year-old with cancer

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The community came together for a bone marrow drive in Alpine on Tuesday with the hope of helping a young boy fight leukemia.

Those who participated had their cheek swabbed to check if they were a match for 3-year-old Colton Pursglove. DNA that didn’t match Colton went into a database to match donors with patients in-need across the country.

KUSI’s Matt Prichard reported live with Colton’s family with details.
