In this photo released by City of Hope, cancer survivor Anita Finnegan, left, of Altadena, Calif. embraces her bone marrow donor Carolyn Rogers, of Chicago, IL as they meet for the first time, Friday April 29, 2011 at City of Hope's '35th annual Bone Marrow Transplant Reunion'  in Duarte, Calif. Rogers signed up for the national bone marrow registry in 2002 during a blood drive to help a family member. Five years later, Rogers learned she was a possible match for Anita Finnegan who had  leukemia. One of the largest gatherings of its kind in the Nation, the reunion is highlighted when - for the first time - survivors met the donors whose stem cells saved their lives. less
