We will be holding a bone marrow drive on Saturday February 20, 2010 at Grand Century Mall in San Jose. Please come out and register as a bone marrow donor if you have not done so. There are so many patients of Asian heritage who need bone marrow donors and cannot find one, due to the shortage of Asians in the National Marrow Donor Program registry.
DATE and TIME: 2010 February 20, 10:00am-3:00pm LOCATION: 1001 Story Rd, San Jose, CA 95112 (view map)

We will be holding a bone marrow drive for Barry Pham at the church annex hall. Please come out to register as a bone marrow donor if you have not done so.
My name is Barry and I was born on April 9th, 2009. I have acute biphenotypic leukemia and I want to educate others about becoming a potential bone marrow donor. I passed away peacefully on Thursday August 5, 2010 at 1:05AM at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital with my mom, dad, and aunt by my side.
