From A3M (Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches):

Fortunately, you can help.

Three Things You Can Do

  1. Please get registered.

Getting registered is quick and requires a simple cheek swab and paperwork (10 minutes of your time). If you are actually a match, the donation process is VERY similar to giving blood.

We have created an organization called “Project Michelle” ( www.Projectmichelle.com) to increase the number of Asians registered in the bone marrow registry.
Our goal is to enroll 15,000 Asians. Her match is most likely to come from a person of Asian descent, however, very few Asians are actually in the registry and this makes it very difficult for doctors to find them a match. This is why we need your help.

We are currently organizing drives nationwide, and you can register by visiting a local drive. Please check our website for information about drives in your area ( www.marrow.org).

If you’re interested in registering, please contact Jino De Castro at 213.473.1672 or jdecsatro@Ltsc.org. You can schedule an appointment to register in person at our downtown office (244 S. San Pedro St. #503 Los Angeles, CA 90012) or we can send you a home kit.

  1. Organize a drive.

Organize a drive in your community (workplace, church, community center, etc.).

At a minimum, please share this email message with at least 20 people, and ask them to do the same. Please point your friends to local drives, ask them to get registered, and organize a drive in their own community.

Please use the power of your address book to spread this message – today more than ever before, we can achieve broad scale and be part of a large online movement to save lives.

  1. Learn more

To learn more, please visit ( www.marrow.org). The site includes more details on how to organize your own drive, valuable information about leukemia, plus FAQs on registering.

Thank you for getting registered and joining this effort to help Michelle win her fight against leukemia – and for helping others who may face blood disorders in the future.

Best,

Michelle’s family and friends
