    theres a jewish registry for blood and bone marrow in australia i think its called ‘gift of life’ and there was recently a drive for people here who needed a match maybe theres a way to see if any of us down here can be of any help?

    WOMEN?

    The poster says that men are welcome. Surely if the patient is a woman, then a closer genetic match will be amongst females? Furthermore, if this Bone Marrow Drive is open to women as well, wouldn’t it increase the chances of finding a match?

    The men are having events tonight at those sites which is why they thought it would be a great opportunity to reach crowds of people. In addition, I have never heard that same gender creates a more likely match for tests like these, check your info. Generally, there are plenty of apportunities for women to donate.

    Where on earth did you hear that garbage?! The best chance for a match is an immediate (nuclear) family member; the second best chance is from a distant relative; and the third chance can come from absolutely ANYONE – no specific age or anything! dont make up stories.
