Get on the Bone Marrow Registry - Help a 6 Year Old Boy

A call for potential bone marrow donors - get tested! A Bay Area preschool boy named Kyle is fighting aplastic anemia - his body doesn't produce enough new blood cells. He needs a bone marrow transplant or he could die within 6 months. Because he is half Caucasian, half Chinese, there would be a better likelihood of a match from donors with the same background. You can read more about Kyle's story here and get tested here.  It involves a saliva/cheek swab sample. That's it! For the record, my husband and I are both on the registry. This is an important thing to do.

You can follow Kyle's cause on Facebook and twitter as well.
