Help Save Emma!

The birth of little Emma should have been a time of happiness and joy
for the Yang family.Tragically, however, 8 month old Emma was diagnosed
with "Severe Combined Immunodeficiency", a fatal disease.

Any mild infection could very easily end Emma's life because she has no
immune system. She needs a bone marrow donor from the Chinese community
to save her life. All it takes is two tablespoons of blood to determine
if your bone marrow matches Emma's. Medical research
suggests the most likely match will be found in a person of full Chinese
descent.

Here is how you can help to save Emma's life:

1).  BLOOD TEST:

People of Chinese descent, between the age of 17-50 years can give 2
tablespoons of blood at no expence to you, on:
