Kevin Walsh's "gift"

The former CN8 anchor is out with a memoir about his donor match with a 16-year-old leukemia patient.

Kevin Walsh's "gift"

Former CN8 reporter/anchor Kevin Walsh, now freelancing for Comcast SportsNet, is shopping for a publisher for his book "The Marrow in Me," which he describes as a faith-based memoir about his relationship to an unrelated 16-year-old leukemia patient, to whom he was the only match for a blood-marrow transplant.

The story begins a dozen years ago when he was a news anchor and reporter at Honolulu's KGMB.

The day after he finished the book, he got a call from the producer of  "Seize the Day," a show on the Catholic Channel of Sirius/XM satellite radio. He'll be interviewed on the show at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
