A fight for life, turns into a way to help others battle too

OAK HILL (WVVA) -- Two young women battling cancer, are fighting for others to survive too.

Jamie Massey and Chelsey Light of Fayette County are inviting people across the two Virginias to a blood drive and bone marrow registry Saturday at the Oak Hill Gospel Tabernacle.

Though these two young ladies are not in need of a transplant, they've seen many others, younger than them, who are. The two and their families are inspired to help.

"Up until something happened to me or my family, I mean I'm guilty of not really knowing or caring or thinking about what's going on with other people and the need for blood or the need for bone marrow potentially. And once I realized that I feel like what we've really tried to do is focus our efforts on helping our family and those out there who are affected as well in the future," says Anthony Treadway, Jamie Massey's aunt.

The Red Cross and Be The Match will be there from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Their goal is to have 100 people giving. All those who do give will receive a free Chick-Fil-A voucher.
