Asian American Blogs Team Up for Bone Marrow Cyberdrive in Memory of Janet Liang #170in7

I joined the bone marrow registry when I was in college and one of the things I make sure to change every time I move is my contact info with the National Marrow Donor Program. Even though re-registering doesn’t help, I know there are a lot of folks out there who simply haven’t registered themselves yet. So if you’re one of those people who haven’t gotten around to getting yourself in the registry, it’s free to do and really easy– just a cheek-swab!– you can do it by mail! More info is below and I’m honored to have been asked to join this online effort alongside by Asian American blogger family.

Super-duper thanks to Jenn of Reappropriate for organizing this online effort for a bone marrow registry drive in honor of Janet. –Joz

The following is cross-posted from 8Asians.com:
Janet Liang, a vibrant 25 year old UCLA graduate and a leukemia patient who spent years championing leukemia awareness and Asian American bone marrow registration, passed away last week. In Janet’s memory, 8Asians jozjozjoz is partnering with a network of other prominent Asian American sites to host 170 in 7: A Bone Marrow Cyberdrive in Memory of Janet Liang.

Leukemia is a type of blood cancer and the most common cancer to affect children and young teens. Treatment to save a leukemia patient’s life often requires a bone marrow transplant from a “perfect match” donor – a donor whose blood matches a recipient’s blood for 10 separate genetic markers.

Unfortunately, Asian American and other non-White leukemia patients are much less likely to find a “perfect match” donor than White leukemia patients. This is because Asian Americans and other minorities are significantly underrepresented in Be The Match, the national bone marrow registry used to search for and match potential bone marrow donors with recipients.

Janet made it her mission to register Asian American bone marrow donors, and thanks in part to her efforts, at least 18 bone marrow matches were made to recipients nationwide. However, last week, Janet passed away without finding a perfect match for herself. Today, many other Asian American leukemia patients are still waiting to find their perfect match, like 2-year-old Jeremy who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. To celebrate Janet’s life and her legacy, we want to register 170 new potential bone marrow donors in Janet’s name in just 7 days.
