On Wednesday at EMC World, we’ll have a team in room 206-B. These folks will be performing a very simple cheek swab test for anyone who volunteers. Ethnicity is absolutely crucial when matching patients with marrow donors. Due to the shortage of ethnic-minorities on the National Registry, ethnic and diverse patients with leukemia or lymphoma are less likely to find a matching donor.

You can be the one to save a life by taking 10 minutes of your time to take this very simple test.

We’ve got more information at the Bloggers Lounge in the main pavilion area. Please stop by to learn more.
