Kyle, who was of Jamaican decent, lived in Stamford, Connecticut and attended New Canaan Country School. He fought his battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for well over a year and was extraordinarily brave until he passed on December 24, 2013, Christmas Eve. Born on Easter, this young man did not die in vain nor will he ever leave the community that loved him do dearly; his memory will resurrect in our continued awareness raising efforts to increase registrants to the national bone marrow registry, and in the support of childhood cancer caregivers around the world.  There are 10.5 million registered done marrow donors and only 7 percent are African-American or black – even fewer are Jamaican. Although his immediate family was not a match, a match was eventually found but the aggressive nature of ALL spread before the transplant could be received. To date, we have have been told that 4 lives will have directly benefitted from Kyle's Corner bone marrow drives.   SPREAD THE WORD.... If you want to join the registry to see if you or someone you know can be match for so many patients awaiting transplants, please access the below links to receive a simple cotton swab kit.  There is no cost and insurance is not required.
