Cumberland bike shop owner seeking marrow donor for niece

March 9, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Michael Iafrate will admit that he didn’t give childhood leukemia much thought until it touched his own family. Iafrate knew about the illness and its impact on children, but like many people, didn’t have a connection that would show him what such an illness can do to a family.

That is not until his niece, Anna Getner, 9, of Wilton, Conn., became ill with ALL leukemia late last year, and his family became involved in trying to get her the option of a bone marrow transplant if that becomes necessary.
