DENVER -- Eighty percent of blood cancer patients in need of stem cell or bone marrow transplant are not able to get one, in part because they can't find a match.

But you can help change that and save a life by registering to be a donor. All it takes to get started is a simple cheek swab.

In the video, see the story of a woman from Parker whose life was saved thanks to a complete stranger.
