WALPOLE, MA (WHDH) - A Walpole woman, who was diagnosed with Leukemia four years ago, was in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant.
After months of searching for a donor, Mandy Monocchio-Putney found a woman in Germany, Magdalena Kruegar, who was willing to help her.
The Red Sox helped bring the two women together for a meeting so Putney could thank Kruegar in person.
The women had recently found each other on Facebook and were able to have their first face-to-face meeting on Friday night.
For more information or to register as a bone marrow donor, please visit dkms.org.
