Bone Marrow Drive

A local organization prepares for a bone marrow drive to honor a beloved family member.
The Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation is teaming up with the organization Own Your Legacy to host a family legacy celebration. The event will be honoring Ron Kirkendall and the memory of his daughter, Michelle Peterson, with a bone marrow drive in Falls City, Nebraska.
Sixteen years ago, Kirkendall championed his own bone marrow drive, and in turn, received the Admiral E.R. Zumalt award for his leadership.
Executive director of Own Your Legacy, Larry Peterson, says today is a celebration for the life of Michelle.
