BROOKLYN - A bone marrow donor drive was held in Windsor Terrace today to help find a match for a young boy suffering from a rare disease that could eventually put him in a vegetative state.
Bobby Seeger, Jr.'s 6-year-old son, Aiden, was diagnosed with ALD last month. The neurological disease robs its victims of their brain function leading to a vegetative state within two years.
Although there is no known cure, a bone marrow transplant is a way to delay the symptoms of the disease.
Within the first few hours, hundreds of people came out to see if they were a match for Aiden. Seeger says he was so touched to see so many people willing to help his family.
