can you spread the word?

Kyle was a student at the high school I teach at.  He has leukemia and they are trying to find a match for him.  They are trying to get more ethnic people to sign up with the donor match program, not only for Kyle but for all other patients waiting for a match.

I registered about 21 years ago and haven't gotten a call yet.  But one day, I may be needed to donate to help save a life.  Back when I signed up, you had to give blood, but now they just do a cheek swab.  How easy is that?

I'm sure if you do a google search for Bone Marrow Donor, you will find a location near you so you too can sign up.
