Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan helped save the life of a young boy, but it had nothing to do with his job.

He just swabbed his cheek and found out he was a bone marrow match for a young cancer patient.

He donated bone marrow, and now that little boy is in remission.

Chief Doan wants to get as many people as possible to sign up for Be the Match.  It's an organization that helps find bone marrow donors.
