Jeremy Kong is a two-year-old Chinese-American superhero out of California. With Jeremy’s Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) diagnosis in June 2012 and impending bone marrow transplant in the next several months, Jeremy’s parents, family, friends and community out in California (with help from the Asian American Donor Program) has been leading a very strong campaign to find him a bone marrow match. There is currently no available match in the registry.
Jeremy Needs You has created a social media page at the Jeremy Needs You Facebook Page, which is a steady stream of drive announcements, updates on Jeremy’s condition, and resources to become registered as a donor.
Jeremy Needs You has been successfully creating drives on the East Coast, and I’ve been in contact with Jeremy’s aunt Yvonne to attempt to get one started in the DC area. She will be flying out to DC on October 7, 2012 to run a drive at Chinese Community Church of Greater Washington in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Swab for Jeremy Kong
Please help spread the word about this drive and help save Jeremy’s life!
