Save Jack From Leukemia: 23 Year Old Needs Blood Marrow Donor

Dear Readers,

I spend a lot of time thinking about the topic of dysfunctional families and the pain those families experience.  Today I want to focus on another topic, a 23 year old with leukemia who will die without a bone marrow transplant.

The story caught my breath as Jack Chin was in my son's high school.  He was a UCLA student and was studying Economics and Accounting.  He started suffering some leg pain last year, was tested and diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  He has been treated with chemotherapy, but his only hope is a bone marrow transplant.  His twin brother is not a match and his best hope is to find someone from the Chinese community.
