'106 And Park' Urges Viewers To Help Save A Life

 


Today’s episode of 106 And Park will be deeper than rap.

The most famous street on BET will get a unique visit from LJ Jones, a 10 year-old boy with a rare, progressively fatal blood disease called hypereosinophilic syndrome.

This disease causes an excess of white blood cells to attack his organs and is one of the rarest diseases in the US with only 50 people having been diagnosed with the disease and LJ has the distinction of being the only child suffering from this type of Leukemia.

LJ’s case is particularly daunting, he’s been through numerous rounds of chemotherapy but it’s going to take a bone marrow transplant to save his life.

In conjunction with BET NEWS and the Preserve Our Legacy organization, 106 & PARK will make a direct appeal to its viewers to get tested and become donors.

In conjunction with that, hosts Terrence & Rosci will get tested live for the Bone Marrow Compatibility exam.

The rate of African American and multi-ethnic individuals signing up to be donors is extremely low.

Currently 83% of African Americans who need transplants never find a match.
The episode airs today (February 9) at 6 p.m.
