Chivas USA and LA Galaxy hold Bone Marrow Donor Drive (AUDIO)

Chivas USA, the LA Galaxy, and The Home Depot Center held a Bone Marrow Donor Drive today in Carson, with players, team staff, and fans all participating. The event was held in hopes of helping Marcia Williams, the wife of Real Salt Lake and Jamaican National Team midfielder Andy Williams. Marcia has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and has been unable to find a match through the national donor registry.

The drive took place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, and was helped by City of Hope, who was on site to facilitate the process - which entails completing a short questionnaire and then giving a swab of cheek cells.

Jesse Marsch, who played with Andy Williams in 2003 and 2004 for the Chicago Fire, was one of many Chivas USA and Galaxy players who were entered today into the National Bone Marrow Registry.
