Bradley Cooper Raises Awareness of Bone Marrow Donation Live on “GMA”

ABC(NEW YORK) — Anthony Daniels is 23 years old, yet he’s battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma — a cancer of the lymphatic system — for the fourth time.

“Each time I beat cancer, it puts more of a toll on my body,” he said. “And every single time it comes back, it gets worse.”

A boxing enthusiast, Daniels knows he needs to keep fighting the disease. He has been looking for a bone marrow donor for a year and a half.

Daniels has a special supporter in his corner.

Actor Bradley Cooper appeared alongside him on ABC's Good Morning America Wednesday to raise awareness about the man’s fight.

During their appearance, Daniels demonstrated the use of a bone marrow donor swab kit and Cooper, 40, swabbed his own cheek.

People who are interested in donating marrow can register online for a swab kit. They’ll swab the inside of their cheeks and return the kit for testing in order to be considered for the bone marrow registry.
