Customer Question
We just learned that...

We just learned that my 7 y.o. great nephew has aplastic anemia. The Dr. told his parents that a donor needs to be found very soon. The child is in Tennessee, we are in Ohio. Where do we start?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?

We have nothing. Do we start with eblod typing or does that matter?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

and get more people to join to enlarge the circle of donors

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
