MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Ten years ago, former Queer Eye star and interior designer, Thom Filicia, donated his bone marrow to his brother, who was diagnosed with myelofibrosis.

It’s a complex blood cancer that affects nearly 25,000 people in the U.S.

Thom joined Action News 5′s Andrew Douglas at the digital desk alongside Dr. Kuykendall to talk about a new GSK initiative called Mapping Myelofibrosis, which helps to raise awareness of this blood cancer and provides educational tools and resources to help navigate all aspects of the disease.
