• 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.

New Nick Glasgow Fund – From Scott Lopez

As many of you know, our friend/co-worker, Nick Glasgow, was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML) on March 16th 2009.  Since then, he has been confined to a hospital room at Kaiser Permanente in Hayward, CA.  During his stay he has endured numerous rounds of chemotherapy in the hopes that he would go into remission, but he hasn’t.  Now he is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant and the race is on to save Nick’s life.

Our primary goal is to help Nick find a bone marrow match.  The magnitude of support Nick and his Family have received is unparalleled.  Be it registering to be a donor, sharing Nick’s story with others and through various media outlets and/or keeping Nick and his Family in your thoughts and prayers, everything you do helps to attain our goal.

Many of you have mentioned that you do not think you are suitable donors, but have expressed interest in providing a contribution to Nick and his Family.

That said, in an effort to help ease the burden of compiling medical expenses, Nick’s friends have set up a fund to assist Nick and his Family during this trying time.  If you would like to make a contribution, please mail your checks to the address provided below.  Although your contribution is not tax deductible, it is immensely appreciated by Nick, his Family and his friends as we continue the fight to save his life.

Also, to learn more about being a donor or to register to become a donor, please visit www.AADP.org or www.marrow.org.
