WHO: Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches

WHY: Officer Matthew Medina has served the Los Angeles Police Department for 7 ½ years. He was recently diagnosed Aplastic Anemia and is in need of a life-saving marrow donor. Every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer, like Leukemia or Lymphoma. 70% of patients don't have a compatible match in the family and rely on finding an unrelated donor. You can help increase odds for every patient by joining the registry.

CONTACT: For more information, please call Ayumi Nagata at (213) 625-2802.
