LAFAYETTE, La.  — Camden Barnard's battle with leukemia, with cancer, awaits the next step. First, his body is working toward a return to remission. Once that's achieved, he'll spend 28 days in an intensive immune therapy protocol, which will hopefully lead to a bone marrow transplant.

You can help Camden and others like him by attending this Saturday's "Be The Match" event at 100 Asma Boulevard in Lafayette from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. And all you have to do is simply swab the inside of your mouth to potentially join the bone marrow registry.
