• 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

The third round of chemotherapy failed to put Nick into remission and “time is really running out.” Carole is in contact with Stanford to see the status of a bone marrow donor match. She’s hoping to hear from them today.

There are many unanswered questions right now: If there is a match found can Nick have an immediate transplant? How long will that take? How long does he have to wait? He needs to be strong enough to endure a transplant, and that is the big unanswered question.

What Carole is asking for is for people to still be tested if they haven’t.

Secondly, for prayer.

Nick and Carole are terrified right now due to all of the uncertainty and running out of options. Please say a prayer for a match, strength for Nick to endure a transplant, that the transplant takes, as well as strength for Carole as she stands by her only son’s side during this uncertain time.
