Andrew and Janet are two people who have recently been diagnosed with leukemia and are in need of your help. They are both Asian American and because of that, they are having difficulty finding a match. Only 7% of the registry today is comprised of Asian Americans. And patients are more likely to find marrow matches with their own ethnicity.

Servants Ministries (a campus Christian group at UIC) is hosting a drive for Janet and Andrew on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 & Wednesday, March 7, 2012 from 9 AM to 4 PM on both days.

Location: First Floor of Student Center East outside of the bookstore (Campus of UIC; 750 S. Halsted St. Chicago, IL)

To register is a simple cheek swab and to donate, if you are ever a match, can be similar to donating blood.

If you are unable to come, please register online to be a marrow donor. Be the match will then send you a swab kit through the mail.
