Family with rare disease seeks bone marrow donors

Tim and Maggie Murry’s four sons — Sean, 21, Patrick, 17, Danny, 12, and Timmy, 9, — all have Diamond Blackfan anemia, an extremely rare and life-threatening blood disorder. The congenital condition inhibits bone marrow from producing an adequate amount of red blood cells, which are essential for transporting oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Without treatment, unstable amounts of iron accumulate in the body, resulting in blood toxicity, vital organ damage and death.
