Why We Need Your Help

Each year, over 30,000 children and adults in the United States are diagnosed with life threatening blood diseases like leukemia. Only 30% of patients will find a matching donor within their families. The remaining 70% must search for an unrelated donor.

Because tissue types are inherited, patients are most likely to match donors of the same ethnic background, which means Korean patient’s matches will have to come from another Korean. Of 20 million registered donors in the US, only 0.5% are Korean. We need your help.
