Last day of bone marrow drive for 9/11 hero

Wednesday is the last day to try and help support a 9/11 hero in need of a bone marrow transplant.

Retired New York City police officer Stephen Bonano has a rare form of blood cancer that may be related to his work at ground zero.

The 50-year-old is now head of security at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A bone marrow drive in Downtown Brooklyn will look for a bone marrow match.

Stop in to 345 Jay Street between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. to find out if you can help.

No reservation or appointment is needed.

All it takes to register as a potential life saver for Steven and others fighting blood cancer is a quick swab of your cheeks. If you become a match, you get a chance to donate cells, save a life and feel like a hero.

The drive is being held by Forest City Ratner Companies with DKMS (, the world's largest bone marrow donor organization.
