SAVED: Lamar Adams

Lamar AdamsIn 2003 seventeen year old Bronx, New York native Lamar went for a physical so he could play high school basketball but was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia(CML). Through the “Be The Match” resistry he would find an anonymous match more than 300 miles away in Rochester, New York where city councilman Adam Mcfadden lived. Because of program rules  the two had to wait at least a year to meet and they have been close ever since.
