USARC officer raises bone marrow donor awareness

A potential bone marrow donor unpacks the donation packet during a bone marrow donor drive at the Fort Bragg Blood Donor Center at Fort Bragg, N.C., Oct. 23, 2013. U.S. Army Reserve Capt. Don Fontaine is hoping to raise awareness and register soldiers and civilians as potential bone marrow donors in the National Bone Marrow registry. He was inspired to raise awareness about the donor program after his 9-year-old nephew was diagnosed with juvenile xanthogranuloma, or JXG. Patients with JXG can have lesions on the skin, in the eye, bones, and internal organs. (U.S. Army photo by Timothy L. Hale/Released)
