While Amit continues to recover from the bone marrow transplant process, it’s important to remember that the need for minority donors still exists. The struggle to find a donor is not over for thousands of minority patients every year who find themselves in similar circumstances.
http://www.cheekswab.org/ is a new website that’s launched in the last two weeks in hopes of putting together some information to better inform prospective donors about the need, process, and experience of both joining the registry and donating bone marrow. Please visit cheekswab.org to learn more, and remember to sign up for a donor kit if you haven’t already! Spreading awareness is the first step to saving lives!
