I need some help from the Midwest. My wife has Stage 4 cancer and the only treatment is a stem cell and bone marrow transplant. There is no DNA match for her in the National Bone Marrow Registry. More details are here: http://forums.mtbr.com/passion/plea-help-792609.html

DNA matches are bases on genetic ancestry. My wife's ancestry is Dutch and German. And in the United States you don't get much more Dutch and German than IA, NE, MO, MN, WI, Western IL and the Eastern Dakotas.

If you can, would you please go to Join Be the Match Registry now. Become a bone marrow donor. and consider registering?
