BE A HERO: Donors Needed For Boca Dad With A Rare Blood Cancer
BOCA RATON, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — A quick swab of your cheek can is all it takes to find out if you can help save the life of Murray Folytn, a Boca Raton father of 2.
Murray Foltyn, a loving husband and father of two young children, is battling a rare blood cancer called Myelofibrosis. His doctors are URGENTLY seeking a matching blood stem cell donor as a transplant is his best hope of a cure. However, he does not currently have a match in his family or the worldwide marrow registry.
Because tissue type factors needed for a match are inherited, Murray’s best chance of finding his donor is among those of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, and specifically with a genetic heritage from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
You could be Murray’s lifesaving hero without even knowing it! All it takes is a swab of your cheek to find out if you are a match for him or another patient in need.
