• Nick Glasgow is a 28-year-old from Fremont, California, who learned this past spring he had Leukemia, and that he needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life.

    Nick is an employee of EMC Corporation in Pleasanton, California, as is his mother.

    Due to his mixed heritage of 1/4 Japanese and 3/4 Caucasian, finding a bone marrow match for Nick is far more difficult.

    Since an email was sent to EMC employees around the world May 15, thousands of people from every corner of the globe have expressed their support and commitment by registering to become donors.

    This blog provides updates on how people can help, on Nick's condition, and other aspects of the race to save Nick.

Update from Nick’s Friend — Stacy Morales

“Nick’s doctors decided to do a third round of chemotherapy to hopefully put Nick into remission or at the very least slow down the cancer. He finished this on Monday, May 25th. He has had a very tough week, and expects this next week to be as well. Typically the two weeks following chemo are brutal. Testing will be done in approximately a week to see what affect the chemotherapy had on the cancer cells. The testing of the registry to find a match is currently taking place. Hopefully we’ll receive good news soon. Everyone should continue to spread the word, and be tested if they haven’t. I spoke with Nick on Monday, and despite how he’s feeling physically his spirits are up. He is amazed at all of the support and generosity of spirit of everyone. He said words cannot express how grateful he and his family are. He is inspired to fight for every single person that has given of themselves.”
