MYFOXNY.COM -

The actor Steve Buscemi led a bone-marrow drive to potentially save the life of Owen Hogan, 2, who has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal blood disorder. Owen's father is a firefighter at Engine Company 216 in Brooklyn.

Friends of Firefighters Inc., which is organizing the drive, hopes that a potential match for Owen will be found if enough people register as bone marrow donors. If you are interested, you can stop by Friends of Firefighters Headquarters, 199 Van Brunt Street, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11231. The remaining hours are Wednesday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
