Could you be a match? July 12, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Malia Yoshioka @ 9:41 am

This urgent request came from a friend of a friend here in Honolulu – please help spread the word and contact them if you know of anyone with the right nationality who is willing to be tested!

A very special friend of mine who is a young mother of three needs our help quickly. She needs a bone marrow transplant ideally from someone who is 50% Japanese/50% Chinese. Her name is Barbie Ho (her husband is Keahi Tucker) and she has an agressive form of Leukemia. Please forward this email to as many people as possible, especially if they are the right nationality. If you are willing to be tested please contact Kinau at 808-753-2374 or, Barbie and Keahi will pay for the blood test and any medical expenses. It’s just a blood test and then if it is a match it is a simple process (not a hospital stay).

UPDATE: There will be a bone marrow drive tomorrow (7/13). 7:30am to 3:30pm @ Starbucks Ward Ave. Testing is as easy as swiping a cotton swab inside your mouth. Please spread the word.
