NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

In early 2013 life seemed perfect for the Hogan family. They were selling their house and preparing to move, their 2nd child was on the way, and Owen, their two-year old boy, was as happy and energetic as any average two year old.

When Tim and Kathleen began to notice that Owen was developing bruises they scheduled a trip to their doctor that revealed a truth that turned the family’s life upside down. Owen had Aplastic Anemia and would likely need a bone marrow transplant to survive.

“As of now, we know there is no available match for Owen,” says Tim, “but we remain hopeful that in spreading the word, the registry will continue to grow, and a match for Owen will be found.”

On Saturday, November 9th, you can learn more about how to help Owen and the thousands of other patients currently in need of a life-saving bone marrow transplant.

They are holding an event to get people to register as a bone marrow donor.

It is Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013 from 9a.m.-4 p.m. at Floral Park Village Hall at 1 Floral Park Blvd. in Floral Park.
