The Agonizing Wait For A Donor / by Maria Hinojosa | March 16, 2012

The Agonizing Wait For A Donor

For people suffering from blood related diseases, including Leukemia, a bone marrow transplant can be the cure.

The perfect matches come from relatives and one’s own ethnicity. But when it comes to life-saving bone marrow transplants, Latinos and other people of color have a much lower chance at finding a match. As part of our series examining health issues facing Latinos, this documentary produced by Habiba Nosheen and Lisa Desai, tells us what can be done to change things.

Latino USA’s year-long look at Latinos and Health is made possible by funding from Pfizer Helpful Answers®, a family of patient assistance programs for the uninsured and underinsured who need help getting Pfizer medicines.
