Moultrie --  More than 200 bone marrow donors have been added to the National Bone Marrow Registry thanks to a marrow drive last week for a south Georgia woman.

A bone marrow drive was held Friday at Moultrie Technical College for 37-year-old Carolyn Tallman.

Tallman was lucky enough to find a match before the drive, but the college decided to hold the drive to help others.

More than 300 people came out and 205 potential donors were accepted, and their information will be placed in the national registry.

If a match is found, that donor will be given the option to donate bone marrow to help that cancer patient.
