HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – As a journalist and publisher of the Hawaii Reporter web site, Malia Zimmerman tells other people’s stories.

Her own story involves donating bone marrow to a woman in need.

“Without this transplant, she will have a zero percent chance of living,” she said.

Zimmerman doesn’t know the recipient, but she does know it’s a 54-year-old woman with cancer who dreams of a cure.

“She wanted to live a year, and then five years, and be cancer free,” she said.
