CBC News: Stem cell donor found for leukemia patient

Moneet MannA donor has been found for a South Asian woman from Canada in need of a life-saving stem cell transplant, reports CBC.

Leukemia patient Moneet Mann took to social media with a clever “will you marrow me” campaign.

She urged members of the South Asian community to sign up for the marrow registry, especially important since patients are more likely to find a match within their own ethnic community.

“I had so many parents calling me saying ‘Oh my god, I don’t even know what we’d do if this was my own daughter.  We want to do whatever we can to help you.'”

You can read more about her battle for life on CBC.
