Chris, 19, was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia in December 2010. His chances of finding an unrelated donor is complicated because he is of Japanese and Caucasian background.
After continuous rounds of blood transfusion and daily medication Chris is slowly regaining back to his normal lifestyle. He is reported to be doing well and no longer dependent on daily blood transfusions. He still still encourages others to register as a marrow donor and donate blood.
