Hello Everyone,

I came across a girl from so cal who is 22 years old and is dying from Leukemia unless she finds a bone marrow match.
I am asking everyone to step up and help save a person's life. We take our health for granted and to see someone else so young dying is just sad. So please help by becoming a potential donor. All you need to do is sign up and send in a swab of your cheek cells.

Here is the link to the person who is dying.

Please help,

Thanks,

E

I gave a blood sample about 4 years ago to try and help a cousin who also suffered from leukemia, so I should still be on the list..

Wish you all the best... My (half) brother had bone marrow cancer and required a transplant, I threw my hat in the ring, that's when I found out that my exotic racial mix made me a match for approximately no one else in the world.

I certainly sympathize with your cause.

did some quick research on the topic and it looks like her best chances of a match will come from somebody in her ethnic community
having said that, the national bonemarrow database has far fewer minority donors..
