The daughter of two of SMU alumni is in need of a marrow donor.

Ann Hinckley, the 2-year-old daughter of former SMU students John and Nancy Anderson, is suffering from aplastic anemia and is in need of a potential marrow donor.

Student body President Patrick Kobler is leading a campaign on campus to find an acceptable donor.

The “Ann Hinckley Bone Marrow Drive” campaign will be hosting bone marrow testing stations throughout campus this week where students can take a mouth swab test. All test results will be compared to Ann’s marrow or others in need or potential need of a transplant.

The testing stations will be on campus Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both Tuesday and Thursday’s stations will be at the crossing of Hughes-Trigg, and on Wednesday it will be at the Dedman Center.
