Emily Monaco

NYPD officer Dean Monaco has a precocious daughter. When Monaco needed a bone marrow transplant to help fight his leukemia, his daughter Emily, a second grader at Riverhead Charter School, organized a bone marrow drive at her the school. Delete Blood Cancer showed up, took cheek swabs for tissue typing and added to the 350,000 potential donors on their list, one of which could be a match for the elder Monaco. deletebloodcancer.org
