Sorry to bother you with a personal plea but I am trying to get the word out. A friend of mine is looking for a bone marrow match for her 6 year old son who is very ill. He needs as many people as possible to send in cheek swab samples to see if they are a match- he needs everyone to send one in- but particularly people of partial or full Irish descent.
It is a very easy process to do the sample (quick cheek swab) and entirely free to get a swab kit at www.bethematch.org
Please take 5 minutes out of your day and join at bethematch.org and request a swab kit- you could help a young boy who seriously needs your help. With healthy bone marrow, he will most likely make a full recovery.
And if you have any other ideas how I can get the word out (and more people to send in swabs), please let me know!
