Missouri State University

This past summer, Missouri State University student Madeline Hayes embarked on a journey she would never forget.

She left the comforts of home to help those who are suffering in one of the world’s most dangerous cities – Mosul, Iraq.

A senior nursing major, Hayes spent a month in Mosul with Free Burma Rangers (FBR), a humanitarian service movement founded by David Eubank, a former U.S. Special Forces operative. FBR provides aid in the conflict areas of Burma, Iraq and Sudan.

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.
