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.

3111 Los Feliz Blvd. Suite 100
Los Angeles, CA 90039]


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.
