Evander Holyfield Jr. Is A HERO! Donates Bone Marrow To Save A Life!

Filed under: InspirationHealthBoxingCeleb Kidz

Darian Craig has neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor that affects mostly infants — something she was diagnosed with as a small small child. Against all odds, she BEAT the 15% chance she had of surviving!

Sadly, that wasn't the only problem: she spent the next 14 years of her life in and out of emergency rooms battling Behcet's syndrome, a rare disorder that causes blood vessels to become inflamed! Not only did she have to have radiation treatments, but she had to have chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant as well. She is one HELL of a fighter.

She was then diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare blood and bone marrow failure disorder, after she had beaten everything else. She was going to need a lot of help to beat this, and they found the perfect match to do it — Evander Holyfield Jr.! You might know his dad, the boxer and champion?

YEAH!
