Mt. Juliet's City Judge, Lawyer and Mom tapped for Potential Bone Marrow Donation

From The Wilson Post

Mt. Juliet's city judge got a phone call a few days ago that astounded her and could potentially change her life, as well as a little boy's.

City judge and long-time local attorney Carolyn Christoffersen never believed because she regularly gave blood while in law school, that 17 years later she would get a call out of the blue telling her she was a tissue match for a 2-year-old little boy dying of a deadly form of anemia. Christoffersen said it was just something she did while in law school. She'd go to the local blood bank.

"I thought it was the right thing to do," she said of her blood donation her senior year in law school. "I was never afraid of needles."

The other day a call came through at her law office in Mt. Juliet and her assistant Tonya told her she better take the call.  Read the entire story here
