After years of visiting special doctors, Julian and his family received a devastating diagnosis: a rare condition that causes bone marrow failure and a weak immune system.
Julian doesn’t mind playing at home with his sister instead of going to school—but his mom knows that time is running short.
Julian desperately needs a bone marrow transplant from a matching donor to cure his blood condition. His parents have already helped add 1,100 potential donors to the registry, and even saved lives along the way—but Julian still hasn’t found his perfect match. Since heritage is part of matching, Julian’s Mexican and Nicaraguan descent makes finding a match difficult.
What if you’re Julian’s cure? Don’t let this family lose their son. Join the registry today.
We’ll ask you a series of questions about your medical history to see if you meet basic qualifications.
We’ll need to get a sample of your DNA. Your kit should arrive in about 3-7 business days.
It’s easy – just swab your cheek and mail the DNA sample back to us to complete your registration.
Because of the genetic complexity of matching donors to patients, it could be weeks, months or years before you’re contacted to donate.
Be ready if you’re contacted as a match. If called, you’re a patient’s best genetic match from the entire registry and perhaps their only hope for a cure.
