CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
A Cincinnati Reds employee who has been
battling a rare blood disease had a successful bone marrow transplant.
Chris Herrell tweeted on Tuesday that the
transplant was complete and was 4 hours and 15 minutes long.
"4/23/2013 = My New Birthday,"
Herrell tweeted. "Thanks Mr. German donor."
Herrell, 39, was diagnosed with a rare blood
disease called Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) in November of last year. Herrell

emotional," said Laurie Herrell.
Chris' fight for full health is far from
over, but his life has been saved. Now he hopes others can experience that same
"Just please, please don't think because
Chris has had his transplant, don't let this go out of your minds," said
Herrell. "Please sign up for "Be the Match."
