Rayan, a three year old child, has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), a form of blood cancer in USA. He is now in URGENT need of a bone marrow transplant. He has not been able to find a perfect match which will increase his chances of survival.

His parents have started a swab test drive and has requested the people belonging to SOUTH ASIAN ETHNICITY to take a bone marrow compatibility SWAB test – it is free, painless (no needles) and takes 30 seconds only. The best part is that they are also maintaining a database from samples which could be used for matching purposes for other patients in future.
