Korean Adoptee awaiting bone marrow transplant

posted Aug 25, 2013, 10:47 PM by Luke K

The Boston Globe posted an article over the weekend about a Korean Adoptee awaiting a bone marrow transplant.

"Now, the 40-year-old’s Korean heritage has suddenly become central to her life in a way she never expected. After being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in July, Manocchio-Putney faces a disturbing reality shared with many minorities in the United States — getting a bone marrow donation to save her life will be much harder for her than it would be for one of her two Caucasian siblings."
