Passing along the following:
A Yeshiva College student at Yeshiva University, Zack, is 20 years old and was recently diagnosed with leukemia. He is in need of a bone marrow transplant and YOU might be a match.
Since tissue type is inherited, Zack’s best chance of finding a genetically matched donor lies with those of Jewish ancestry. It takes just 30 seconds to swab the inside of your cheek.
YOU can make a difference for Zack and other potential recipients.
