Drives Drives and more Drives!

You guys have been so great raising money and getting swabbed. So far, in the month of January, 3,000 people have been swabbed in the U.S. We seem to be in a friendly race with a 4-year-old kid with Aplastic Anemia from California (remember any swab we do here can match him too. He’s mixed race Chinese and Caucasian so if you are too… PLEASE SWAB!!!!). Right now we are neck and neck for swabs but are a bit behind in donations.

If you can please tell everyone you know to donate money to go directly toward the cost of swabs at put it on facebook, twitter, google, yahoo, etc… please tell everyone you know!

An important bit of information We need donors between the ages of 18-44. Children don’t graft well to older donors. It sucks but it’s true. So we are looking for young spry college kids, 20 and 30 somethings. PLEASE if you know any—or are one—PLEASE get swabbed.
