Anyone interested in becoming a bone marrow donor can register here.

The story originates from two men, Chris Betancourt and Dillon Hill. Betancourt was diagnosed with cancer and only has a year to live, according to the fundraiser's website. The friends are hoping to set a record for the amount of bone marrow registries in one day on Thursday.
