Help The Lion King's Shannon Tavarez Fight Leukemia

Inside Track   Help The Lion King's Shannon Tavarez Fight Leukemia
 
11-year-old Shannon Tavarez lived every little girl's dream performing as young Nala in The Lion King on Broadway. In April, Shannon was diagnosed with AML Leukemia, and now she lives at Schneider Children's Hospital in Long Island, fighting her cancer with daily chemo treatments.


Shannon's chances of beating this horrible disease will greatly increase with a bone marrow transplant.  African American's have a particularly hard time finding a match, as they make up less than seven percent of the national registry (according to DKMS, the largest bone marrow donor center).
