Help find a match for Lara

Lara is of Italian, Chinese and Thai heritage. But being mixed race means that finding a matching bone marrow donor is extremely difficult. Less than 3% of donors on the worldwide bone marrow donor registry are of mixed race… and only a small portion of them are a Asian-European like Lara.
 
You can make a difference by joining a bone marrow registry. It's as easy as spitting into a test tube or using a cheek swab. If you turn out to be a match for Lara or one of the 12,000 other people around the world in need, you could save a life!

Join your national bone marrow registry:

Each country has its own bone marrow donor registry but they're joined together to enable doctors for Lara and other Leukemia patients to search for potential matches around the world. Join the 25 million people around the world who have registered to give hope for the future to those with Leukemia.
