Donor Update – 1/11/10

Email excerpt from my Bone Marrow Donor Coordinator:

I have found potential MUD [Matched Unrelated Donor] donors but I just requested the samples to be sent here for testing to see if they are fully matched. The samples are kept in the individual registry repository I do not have any planned arrival dates from the samples that are requested at this time. Once the sample arrives it can take 10-14 days before we know if it is a match.

The underlines for emphasis are mine. Updates will follow as they are received.
