Match for Max

Kathy, Nora, Max, and I have organized this site in order to register as many potential bone marrow donors as possible for as many patients awaiting transplants as possible.

Max was recently diagnosed with Idiopathic Aplastic Anemia, a condition of unknown cause in which the bone marrow fails to properly make blood cells, including white cells, red cells, and platelets. He is currently undergoing pharmacological treatment and we are optimistic that this will halt the disorder and reverse the destruction of cells. However, if this treatment is not successful, ultimately a bone marrow transplant could be required.

The success of such a procedure is enormously dependent on finding a matching donor. That is why we are asking our friends, family, and anyone with an interest in helping, to register and be tested at the Gift of Life Marrow Registry.

Information and details of this process are available on Gift of Life's website. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at grossman.terry@gmail.com.

The usual cost of the swab kit and testing is $60, but if you enter the Subscription Code: Match4Max on the payment page, the cost is free. Thank you all for caring enough to check out the information on this page. We will keep you posted on Max’s progress.
