My name is Kazumi and I am a Japanese American living in Arizona. I am a high school math teacher, and have also taught at Japanese weekend school for over two decades. I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in September of this year. After completing my first two rounds of chemotherapy the next step requires a stem cell transplant. The highest likelihood of a good match will be from someone of Japanese descent. I am reaching out to the Japanese community and am asking for your help. Please consider ordering a free cheek swab kit to see if you are my match. I will continue fighting so that I can get back to doing all of the things that I love like working out, hiking, travelling, and enjoying life.
