After putting on a statewide bone marrow drive to help find a positive match for a veteran officer, California Highway Patrol has said they've found one.
CHP officer Keith Meter was identified in 2014 as a potential donor for a young girl with bone marrow cancer. But when going through the screening process to donate his marrow to the girl, he was told that he, too, had a form of cancer — myelodysplastic syndrome.
According to CHP, 43 different offices across the state held drives, which brought 2,227 new donors.
Meter is at a Pasadena-area hospital and is expected to begin the bone marrow transplant process this coming week.
