Searching for the Perfect Match
This week, we had lunch with Nicole Howard and her mom and brother. Nicole was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia when she was just 4 years old. Her multiracial Japanese, Caucasian and Native American heritage made finding her life-saving match difficult. Her story was actually the reason why MAVIN started their MatchMaker Bone Marrow Project. Although Nicole still hasn't found her donor, she's on an experimental drug that is keeping her healthy and happy!
