Class of 1988
After years of traveling the globe reporting on some of the biggest stories of our lifetime, TV News and Sportscaster Kevin Walsh, Class of 1988 student Council President has released his first published book. The Marrow in Me is the story of Kevin becoming an unrelated bone marrow donor for a 16-year-old boy he'd never met. Kevin became a very rare bone marrow match after covering the story of a leukemia patient in Hawaii who found a golf ball with the words BEAT LEUKEMIA stamped on the side. Inspired by the lucky find, Kevin gave a sample of blood away from the cameras. While he didn't match the marrow type of the golf ball founder, Kevin was the only match in the world for someone else. In gripping detail, The Marrow in Me tells what it's really like to have marrow drilled and sucked from your bones in the hopes of saving a life, and the emotional attachment a donor develops for the mystery person on the other end. There has never been a published book written by an anonymous bone marrow donor. The Marrow in Me has earned high praise professional athletes, esteemed national columnists, major magazines and television networks. See what the fuss is about and read about the journey of a proud Abington alum in The Marrow in Me, available at www.kevinwalshonline.com. A portion of the proceeds benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand for pediatric cancer and research.
