Could You Be Someone's Match?

Did you know that 1 in 95 children with Down syndrome are diagnosed with leukemia?  That's a scary statistic, but the good news is that kids with Down syndrome are very likely to beat this cancer-- 85% of the time.  The same factors that raise the risk of contracting leukemia lead to a better response to treatment. 

In support of all the families dealing with this challenge, will you consider registering with the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry?  It's simple- you just sign up on their website and if you are eligible, they will mail you a kit to swab your cheek and you send the sample back.  You could be the match that could help save someone's life!  Click below for more info:
