Bone Marrow Donor Screening in Nyack Saturday

Dr. Kenneth Zatz will hold a screening for bone marrow donors to 18 Washington Ave. in South Nyack, NY Saturday to try to find a match for one-year-old Vivek Shanoy.

Dr. Kenneth Zatz will host a bone marrow donor drive in the hopes of finding a match for a one-year-old boy at his office in South Nyack from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. 

Vivek Shenoy, who just turned one last weekend, needs a bone marrow transplant to treat HLH, a fatal blood disorder. The screening involves taking a swab sample from the potential donor's mouth. Vivek's parents have already lost one child to HLH. 

To register or gather more information, go to the Vivek Report Facebook page or read Erica Bloomenthal's blog about the efforts to help.
