From AOPA:

Capt. Al Haynes is in yet another life-or-death struggle, but this time it's purely on the ground. Haynes was the United Airlines captain who, along with his crew, in 1989 guided a crippled DC-10–an engine failure caused the loss of all hydraulic flight control systems–to a crash landing in Sioux City, Iowa. Although lives were lost on Flight 232, many were saved by Haynes' performance in a nearly impossible situation. Now he's fighting to save his daughter's life. Laurie Arguello, 39, is in need of a bone marrow transplant and must raise $250,000 to cover out-of-pocket expenses. Haynes is working in conjunction with the National Foundation for Transplants and all contributions are tax deductible.

Here is specific information about his daughter's situation:
