Amazing! This Leukemia Survivor Got to Meet the Woman Who Saved His Life!

But thanks to the wonderful invention of the internet, Luis was able to find a viable donor through Be the Match — an online bone-marrow-match-up registry. The transplant saved his life.

See the touching meeting between Luis and his donor — two strangers with an indivisible bond.
