Leukemia-diagnosed Ottawa native once again searching for stem-cell donor

For the third time, Chris Taylor is looking for a stem-cell donor.

The Ottawa native diagnosed with leukemia two years ago was told he had one last November, however the donor suffered a medical complication.

Now, a second donor has backed out.

Taylor's cancer is in remission, but he tells CTV Ottawa that doctors fear the disease will keep coming back unless there's a transplant.

Taylor is a business partner at the Crazy Horse Grill in Kanata, and he manages a pub in Toronto.

Swabbing parties were held in October with the hopes of finding a stem-cell match.
