Bright Horizons Community Champions Program

Community Champion Hannah Johnson didn’t know how much her life would change when she signed up to be on the bone marrow registry.“When I found out that I was a match for an infant donor it flipped my world upside down! I went on to donate bone marrow on August 5, 2013. It is such a rare opportunity to have such a direct positive impact on someone else's life. It truly makes you feel like you can do anything!”
