Reg istering transplant donors

Created in the fall uf last
year, Michigan Marruw
fur Minorities is a student
grnup luoking to increase
bunt marruw registratiun
amung minurity groups un
campus.
LSA junior Mahjabeen
Siddiqui, a cure leader of
MMM, said the group's gual
is to raise awareness about
the bunt marruw registry
foundation, Be The Match-
an urganizatiun created by
the Natiunal Macmow Donor
Prugram that already has
nmure than 8 nmilliun poten-
tial dunurs registered.
Anyonec between the ages
of 18 and 60 years, who meet
establishcd health guide-
lines can register In he a
naurrow donur, accurding
tu Be The Match. The reg-
istratiun process invulves

completing a health histury
form and taking a cheek
swab fur DNA analysis.
There are inure than
10,000 medical patients
every year in the United
States in need ofa bune mar-
row transplant, accurdingnuo
a release by Be The Match.
"Finding a match
depends un huw rinse a
patient's genes nmatch with
(the genes of) anuther indi-
vidual," Siddiqui wrute in an
e-mail interview. "The best
chance uf finding a persun
with a rinse gene nmatch is
within your uwn family ur
with peuple who are frum
yuur ethnicity."
MMM will fucus next
year un finding a larger
audience uf hunt marruw
donurs tu help patients with
life-threatening diseases,

Siddiqui said. Because the
group is shifting its fucus
to dunur recruitment, Sid-
diqui added that MMM is
currently in the prucess uf
changing its name.
"I would nut want uur
urganizatiun tu be pur-
trayed as if we are unly louk-
lug fur minurities, because
even Caucasians have a very
difficult time in finding a
match," Siddiqui wrute in
the e-mail.
"We initially started the
urganizatiun, thinking that
msinurities are in inure need
since there are less minuri-
ties registered within the
registry," Siddiqui wrote.
"Huwever, even though
there are fewer minuri-
ties registered, it's nut just
nminurities that need help
when it cumes tu finding a

match."
Siddiqui said MMM
will focus next year un
recruiting a large number
uf students to vulunteer fur
registry drives and to wurk
with uther student gruups
like the lucal chapter uf the
Red Cruss.
The -10 members that
make up MMM have been
invulved in bunt marruw
registry drives at events like
the UM vs. OSU Blood Bat-
tie and an MSA-spunsured
bluod drive, Siddiqui wrute
in the e-mail.
Siddiqui said she hupes
that thruugh the group's
effurts MMM can "give
peuple who nted bunt mar-
row transplants hupe that
they'll find a match on the
registry."
