Bone Marrow Donors Needed to Help Justin
[Update: Swindle Magazine in conjunction with the City of Hope has organized a bone marrow drive for Justin (see below). It’s next Tuesday, January 6th 2009 from 10 am to 2 PM in Atwater. The testing will be done via mouth swab (no blood, no needles) and will be free of charge.

We’re interrupting our normal toy news to ask for your help in looking out for a friend in dire need. One of Amanda Visell’s friends, Justin, has had a relapse with his leukemia and now urgently needs a bone marrow transplant. Since his family members’ marrow doesn’t match he’s asking people to get tested in the hopes of finding a compatible donor. Testing is quick and painless via mouth swab or a blood test. The $50 processing fee will be waived if you also donate blood at the same time. It’s also possible to get a testing kit mailed to you. If you’re in LA you can go directly to the City of Hope to get tested.
To help Justin out with his life-threatening situation, Amanda is offering to send an original drawing to anyone who gets tested. For more info on how to get tested, please email Justin --- justin[at]thedutchpress[dot]com. Thank you.
