Community comes together in honor of toddler who fought blood disorder
April 13, 2018

GenCure and South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC), both subsidiaries of BioBridge Global, will host a marrow registry event and a blood drive Friday, April 13 – Sunday April 15 at the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center Donor Pavilion to replenish blood that helped Jason Luke battle his blood disorder for 10 months.

The toddler was diagnosed with severe congenital neutropenia, a white blood cell disorder in June of 2016. The selflessness of blood and platelet donors helped the two-year-old fight during his battle.

Jason underwent six surgeries, was rushed to the emergency room three times, needed hundreds of blood transfusions and received a marrow transplant.

GenCure, a subsidiary of BioBridge Global, helped facilitate the meeting of an Amazon shopper and an Amazon employee who had a rather strange introduction. A random addition to an Amazon package led to the pair meeting and also led to a first-of-its-kind event at the online company’s facility in San Marcos – a marrow donor registry drive. 

The drive by the GenCure Marrow Donor Program was organized by Amazon employee Kenneth Delerme, who accidentally dropped his keys and his Amazon ID card in a shipment to Nicole Shen in Houston earlier this year. Once Shen discovered the keys, she used her extensive social media network to find Delerme and return his keys and badge.

A new documentary film is shedding light on the need for more people of diverse and mixed-race origins to sign up for the bone marrow donor registry.

Jeff Chiba Stearns’ film, Mixed Match, has been shown at multiple film festivals after making its debut at the 35th Vancouver International Film Festival.

Mixed Match follows the stories of five people trying to find life-saving bone marrow donations. Their searches have been unsuccessful because of their ethnically diverse backgrounds.

To have a successful stem cell transplant, the donor and patient must have closely matched HLA (human leukocyte antigen) genetic markers. For some patients with multiple ethnic backgrounds, this can be a one-in-a-million shot.
