They said there's a young man dealing with blood cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma. Is there anything you could do. Take a video. Do a photograph. I'm not on social media. I said, can I meet. Lets meet and talk. I sat down. Met his brother, too. An incredible guy. What he's gone through. I was completely ignorant about the process. The fact that he could have a 50% chance of survival if he just finds a donor. I thought, I know you, a little bit. And I know that you're familiar with this. And my father had non-hodgkin's lymphoma. He died of lung cancer four years ago. This is a great platform. It is. I thought I knew a lot. I didn't. It's about educating people. What was it like, he's your corner man. He's in the corner with you. I'm so taken back by everything. I'm so lucky to have had the opportunity to just meet him. Let alone to be here with you and him at the same time to you can that about what I'm going through and thousands of other people are going through. It's like a dream, honestly. It's important, Anthony and Bradley, you have your brothers and your beautiful mom. Family members are tested. As my family members were tested.

Get people more involved on the registry? Yes. That's what we have been trying to do. About a year and half ago, I thought because I had two brothers that, not really knowing the process, I would get a perfect match or a closer match. They ended up being perfect matches for each other. Not myself. The whole process has been, it's ease city how to do everything. When I was sick for 2 1/2 years before I knew I needed another transplant, I didn't know the process. How easy it was. How desperate people like me need them. Without it, we're not going to survive. And the transplant can lead to a possible cure for 70 conditions including yours. You want to show your man how to do it? If someone reaches your organization, delete Take the swabs out. As simple as swabbing the cheek. Put it against your right and left cheek separately for 0 seconds. Get all the cells. Take it out that. Put it in the right side. Swab it for 20 seconds. And, there's your team. I love that #anthony'sfight. You have this team around. You do both cheeks. Put it back in. And what would he do, Anthony? He would send it back in. Get a card. I think that's inside there, saying you're a rej officered donor. In four to six weeks you find out if you're somebody's match. You don't pay for the postage. Your postage is paid. You send it in. I think it's in there you'll receive this card saying you'll be a registered toner. Pretty simple. It's amazing. Right then, you just tested to be -- Doesn't have to be 0 seconds on each. Exactly. For TV purposes. You know that as an actor. Not exciting TV. Hey, it is exciting TV. But 20 seconds. If they do get the call, hope if I they will, they should make that decision, talk to their doctors, understand the process. My sister, thank the good lord, was a perfect match. And she's the biggest Nellie. She had no discomfort. No ill effects to being the donor. If we get the word out more, don't you think? Orveg. That's the only way to do it. People think of this as a hard, painful process. ? What is it about him? You get approached all the time, Bradley. Um, well, I mean, just look at him. He's magical. And, we got along right away.
