Dear Friends –

As you may know, I was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia in January of 2002. I had just turned 5 years old.  Since then, I have had every possible medical treatment for this disease, including several different rounds of profound immune-suppression.  My family, doctors and many other people have continuously searched for a matching bone marrow donor for me because a successful bone marrow transplant is my last chance to get rid of this “stupid Aplastic Anemia” once and for all!

My parents, with the help of many, many others, have worked with people all over the world to let everyone know about the need for people to become committed potential bone marrow donors. It’s simple. It’s easy. I just know that if people knew that a Q Tip swab to the insides of your cheek is all that is needed to register your marrow, everyone would join the world marrow registry.

 And please don’t forget to donate blood and platelets as often as you can. I need transfusions every week, and there are thousands of others just like me who depend on the loving kindness of others to live, until we get rid of our diseases.

We urge you to join a marrow registry by contacting your local blood center. If you are already a blood donor, ask to register your marrow the next time you give blood. Let every expectant parent know that they can help by donating their baby's umbilical cord free of charge. Help by organizing a bone marrow donor drive where you live and work. Together, we can save thousands of people like me who continue to search and hope for a match.

In the US alone, there are 35,000 more people every year diagnosed with one of 70 different illnesses for whom their best chance of survival is a bone marrow transplant. Very few will find a match in their family. Fewer yet will find an unrelated donor in time.  

               Please Recycle your Marrow!  Give the Gift of Life!

It’s really very simple. Just a Q Tip swab to the insides of your cheek is all it takes to register your marrow. For the location nearest you please use the interactive map at the National Marrow Donor Program or Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches, or go to our Links page.
