Maci Hyman is only a 13-month-old baby girl from South Carolina. At this tender young age instead of playing with other kids, her activities take place in a room at Prisma Health Children's Hospital where she's been hospitalized since January. Maci was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome.  It's a disease that disrupts the bone marrow production of her healthy blood cells in her body. Often it is a precursor to leukemia. MDS can be life threatening in some cases. Doctors advise her parents to search for a bone marrow match. The bone marrow transplant is the only thing that can 100 percent cure the disease. Are you in good health and have the desire to save a life? If you answered yes, please visit  BeTheMatch.org and take the test to see if you can save Maci. it's simply swabbing the inside of your mouth with a cotton swab. The test is simple and free for anyone.
