Adam Charles from the band Halifax SAVES A LIFE.
Adam Charles, of the band Halifax, was a match to save someone's life
with Leukemia.

Adam signed up just like the other 7000 that Music Saves Lives
registered this passed year, but he was called by DKMS (bone marrow
organization) and was told that he matched someone with a blood
cancer. He was also informed that without him, the cancer patient
would die. Adam shared with MSL on the phone, in pure humility, that
he was asked to save someone and did. It was just a few days ago that
we found out, but he donated at the City of Hope in California on
September 4th, 2007. He kept to himself about this and only his
family and the band knew.

Adam Sign up at the Bamboozle Left in Pomona California last April.

If you would like to have an opportunity to save a life please sign up
for the National Bone Marrow Program at www.dkmsamericas.org or e-mail

On another note, this is the first time in a long time that I have heard/seen this band mentioned.

yeah they have literally done not a single thing (that any of us could see - maybe they're writing or something) since september or october. i've seen them around at shows in LA a fair bit, though.

this is a really neat story. even more so that he just did it to be a good person - not for the good publicity.

Awesome deed, btw.
