  • Amy's Army
  • Bone Marrow Donor Drive Set

    Pittsburgh (KDKA) Dozens of volunteers are looking for a needle in a haystack. They call themselves "Amy's Army," and they are trying to help an eleven-year old girl from Mt. Lebanon.

    Amy Katz has a rare form of leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant, but of the eight million people in the International Bone Marrow Registry -- not one person is a match.

    Now her "Army" is hoping someone from the area -- who isn't on the registry -- will turn out to be a lifesaving match for Amy.

    The group is organizing a free screening this weekend in the South Hills.

    The donor drive will be held this Sunday from 10am until 4pm at Temple Emanuel on Bower Hill Road.

    For more information, call 1-877-Aid-4-Amy.
