National Chinese Stem Cell Drive

I joined the OneMatch program years ago. The procedure to test is painless.
Now they have a program for Chinese in Canada. I hope every suitable age Chinese can join in. For you and for the other Asian in Canada.
The following email is received from OneMatch.
We’re emailing you today to ask for your help. You can spread the word of some up-coming stem cell awareness and buccal swab collection events organized by our partner, OtherHalf – Chinese Stem Initiative.
Please encourage other socially minded Canadians in Toronto and Vancouver on March 27th to be ‘The One.’

The events run from 11:00am to 5:00pm at First Markham Place (Markham, ON), Splendid China Mall (Scarborough, ON), the Chinese Gospel Church (Chinatown, 450 Dundas St. W) and the Aberdeen Centre (Richmond, BC).

One Match Stem Cell and Marrow Network

I would like to introduce this network for every Canadian adult.
I joined this network and have my blood information on its database.
The first step to do is to go to One Match site. Filling the online form and wait them contact you.
Basicly you will get an phone call to confirm you really want to join it and make sure you know what you do.
Then you will receive a mail with a test swab pack including return envelope.
The test kit has instruction and it is easy for you to collect test sample yourself.
I have an photo of it.

Just use the swab to touch the inner cheek to get sample by four times. And mail it out.
The network will let lab to doing the test and try to match it with others’.
If match, you can save a life.
Do not fear the process to retrive the stem cell. It is a hi-tech age. Stem cells can be obtained from the circulating blood.
