About the Event

Donor Drive for Paul Goodman

Young Man of Jewish (Ashkenazi) and Japanese Descent in Urgent Need

of Bone Marrow Transplant

Honolulu – Be The Match Hawaii continues its search to find a donor for Paul Goodman who

lives in Orange County, California. Paul is of Japanese and Jewish (Ashkenazi) descent, which

makes it even more difficult to find a bone marrow donor.

Hawaii is one of the most culturally diverse communities on the planet. But did you know that

ONLY 41% of Asian Pacific Islanders are able to find a bone marrow donor? And that all people

of mixed heritage face similar challenges.

Paul is among thousands of patients with life-threatening blood diseases and cancers

nationwide who are searching for that miracle donor match. Paul’s leukemia has come back

after remission, and now a bone marrow transplant is his only hope. Please support for Paul

and his ‘ohana by adding your name to the Hawaii donor registry.

Potential donors must be between the ages of 18 to 44, meet our health guidelines and be

willing to donate to anyone in need of a bone marrow or blood stem-cell transplant. The online

registration process includes a short form to complete along with a mouth/cheek swab sample.

bone marrow transplants to patients with leukemia and other life-threatening blood diseases.

Over 73,000 donors are registered in Hawaii though more are needed. Since matches are

typically found within the same ethnic background, Hawaii donors offer hope to patients in

Hawaii and all over the world.
