Marc is a 9 year old boy living in Marlboro NJ. He has a rare genetic blood disorder known as HLH. Marc desperately needs a bone marrow transplant and there is no ideal match today.
Since tissue type is inherited, the best chance of finding a genetically matched donor for Marc, as well as hundreds of other patients with a variety of diseases, lies with those of similar ethnicity. While no one will be turned away from the drive, those of Eastern European ancestry offer the greatest chance of a successful match.
The Yeshiva University Student Medical Ethics Society will be hosting an Emergency Bone Marrow Drive.
A few minutes of your day could save a life!
Thank you so much for participating!
