50 Cent Swabs And Registers For Bone Marrow Donor Center
August 6, 2010 at 9:55 AM (PT)
SHADY/INTERSCOPE artist 50 CENT is urging his fans and others to register with DKMS, the largest bone marrow donor center in the world. 50 CENT heard about 11-year-old SHANNON TAVAREZ, star of DISNEY’s THE LION KING before she was diagnosed with leukemia in APRIL, and he wanted to do something to help.
In a press release from DKMS, 50 CENT said, "My son is just a couple years older than SHANNON and I can’t imagine if his life was needlessly cut short when there is someone out there that could save him. He added, "A complete stranger is the only person who can give SHANNON a fighting chance to live.

50 CENT has registered with DKMS by completing a simple cheek swab last week and he shot a PSA urging his fans to donate.
