Bone Marrow Donor Needed!

My friend Justin Van Hoy needs your help! He recently had a relapse with leukemia and needs to find a matching bone marrow donor… Below is a copy of the email he sent me, it has a few options of ways you can get tested to see if you are a match. Please get tested and see if you might be a match! Also please repost and forward this to everyone you can…

In case you have not heard, I have had some bad luck and relapsed from my remission from the cancer ( leukemia ). I had a 30% chance of relapsing, and unfortunately that 30% has happened. This time around there is no chance to cure it with regular chemotherapy though, and I have to have a bone marrow transplant. My brother and sister are not matches, so we are having to go searching for an unrelated donor. With this being said, It would mean the world to me if any of you would take the time to see if you are a match. To get tested is really simple and only requires a mouth swab or a very quick blood test.

Some of my information you will need:
