    However, finding a match will be especially challenging. Baylor’s German-Japanese heritage makes it hard to find a donor.
    When I saw the headline I suspected the boy is mixed race, those individuals are often the ones who can't find a match.

    I would gladly do that, but I am Cherokee. I wonder if blood type has anything to do with it? I am AB negative. I am an active donor.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Sandy Duncan did a commercial to sign up and become a marrow donor years and years ago. I signed up. They sent me a kit that I had to take to the doctors. Had blood draws and he had a bunch of vials to put it in and mail off for typing.
    I'm in the system and haven't ever been matched to anyone.
