Jennifer Lopez Uses Her Super Powers For Good

Jennifer Lopez is trying to get a bone marrow doner for a fellow Latina who has blood cancer. I think it is great to see celebrities stand up for causes they really are concerned about instead of doing things because it's the latest trend.

Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez is urging Hispanics in New York City to donate blood marrow to help Janet Ovalles, a 29-year-old of Dominican descent who needs a transplant from a matching donor to survive. "I am a young Hispanic woman, so is Janet. I could empathize with her situation so much," Lopez said in a statement released Friday by DKMS, the bone marrow donor center that is organizing donor drives for Ovalles. (Yahoo)
