Alex Tung is a young Chinese-American with acute myeloid leukemia. He’s in his fourth and final round of chemotherapy.
“Finding a bone marrow match is Alex’s only hope. Please register to become a bone marrow donor.”
Alex’s final round of chemotherapy will be on November 26th. Doctors say his chances for survival are slim if he doesn’t find a donor match before then.
Asian patients find a donor only about 40% of the time. In the US, approximately one person dies from blood cancer every 10 minutes.
