MORAN — Gabrielle White, 19 and of Charlotte, N.C., didn’t hesitate when asked to donate bone marrow to a stranger.

The teen’s willingness to subject herself to the two-day donation process — and the intimidatingly large needle that went with it — didn’t surprise her grandmother, Corky Lynes, of Moran.

“She’s an angel,” Lynes said. “When she told me what she was doing, it was instant fright. Then I told her how proud I was.”
