Southeastern Louisiana University launches "Swabbin' for Robin"

ABC's own Robin Roberts is recovering from a bone marrow transplant.

Throughout her journey Robin has inspired many people to become donors.

Whether it is someone you know, like Robin's sister who was her donor or a complete stranger, the word is getting out.

Since Robin's announcement, over 56,000 people have registered on line to be potential donors.

Students at Robin's alma mater, Southeastern Louisiana University, have really stepped up to support her and everyone else in need of a bone marrow transplant.

The Lions even dubbed the phrase "Swabbin for Robin" to get people motivated to help donate.
