Make Me Stronger

A call to action. A cry for help. An opportunity for you to realize your power to give strength to someone affected by a blood cancer (Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma). Get involved. Make someone stronger.

Google and Quora Hold Drives On-Site! #gettinginvolved

Google and Quora join forces with Asian American Donor Program (AADP) to raise awareness around the severe shortage of  Asians and other minorities in the registry.

Both companies are holding drives this week for 3 patients in urgent need of a bone marrow match. Nina, William and Rajesh. Sharing their stories, hoping to help them find a match in time.

Getting Involved. Bringing the issue to their offices. Hoping to save a life.

The drives are being held on-site and are open to the public.

There are over 12,000 patients in the US alone waiting for that call. The call that tells them that they have a match and fighting chance to live.

If every week 1 company hosted a drive on-site as Google and Quora are, imagine how many of those calls could be made…

If you are interested in hosting a drive at your company, contact AADP, Be The Match, DKMS or SAMAR.

    Reblogged this on THAAKAT FOUNDATION and commented:
    The National Bone Marrow Registry has less than 5% of minority registrants. That means, as a minority in need of a lifesaving match, you have a 1 in 20,000 chance of finding someone.

    Thank you Google and Quora for encouraging the conversation on awareness!
