Bone Transplant Desperately needed for Nick Glasgow, Donors wanted!!

A friend and coworker of mine, Nick Glasgow, is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. Nick was a healthy 27 year old who came down with a sore throat. For 2 weeks the doctors thought he might have strep throat. After a bloodtest, they gave Nick the devastating news that he had Leukemia, AML. Nick underwent 2 rounds of agressive chemotherapy that did not work. His doctor's informed him that he needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life. Due to his ethnicity, doctor's have given him slim chance to find one. The reason? Low registration of donors of mixed ethnicities. If you are of Caucasian and Asian decent, PLEASE go to AADP.org to search for a local drive or order a free testing kit to be mailed to you. All that is required is a simple cheek swab. Please help! You can save Nick's life, or someone just like him. Time is of the essence, please, ACT NOW!

For updates on Nick please go to here.
