    Jamison was diagnosed with a severe form of aplastic anemia, a disorder that must be treated with chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.

    Jamison Abrencia is in the fight of his young life and he needs your help.

    The East Bay boy will turn 2 in August but earlier this month, his family got devastating medical news. Jamison was diagnosed with a severe form of aplastic anemia, a blood disorder that must be treated with chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.

    Jamison's Filipino-American heritage will make it that much tougher to find a match. Neither of his parents are matches, nor his only sister.

    The family is now turning to the public for help. They have organized several bone marrow drives over the next few weeks, starting with this weekend, in hopes of finding Jamison's match.
