A’dja Jones

What would you do if you had the chance to save someone’s life?

That was a decision A’dja Jones from Missouri State University had to make. In 2014, she registered as a bone marrow donor at a drive on campus. The drive was in aid of MSU softball player Allie Alvstad, who had leukemia.

In 2015, Jones got a message that would change her life forever. She was a match for a young child and chose to give him her marrow.
