Diagnosed: Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)
Ethnicity: 1/2 Japanese, 3/8 Chinese, 1/8 Vietnamese

Natalie, a loving 8-year-old daughter, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia (AML). Natalie was in remission, but on January 19th, her cancer returned. She urgently needs a bone marrow transplant to live. Because of the critical shortage of minority and multi-racial donors, her search is especially difficult.

Below is a personal appeal from Natalie's father:

My daughter Natalie has leukemia (AML). She went through 6 months of chemo in 2008, but the leukemia came back. We need to find bone marrow donor in the next 30 days.

The biggest need is for us to find an Asian match for Natalie.  Due to her uncommon ethnic ancestry, we're having a tough time finding a match.

If you know anyone who is Asian, or has this Asian ethnic mix:
1/2 Japanese, 3/8 Chinese, 1/8 Vietnamese,
Please ask them to do a simple, painless test. They may save her life.
