This Purim, you might be the one person who could save Murray’s life.
Murray Foltyn is 41 years-old, formerly from Hampstead, and now living in Sydney, Australia. He is married with 2 young children. He has a rare blood cancer, for which his only chance of successful treatment is with a stem cell transplant from someone with a matching tissue type. Because Murray is Jewish, a matching donor is far more likely to be Jewish too.
If you are 16-30 years old, you could be that person, but the only way to find out is for you to take a simple test. This just means brushing the inside of your mouth with a cotton bud-like swab.
