As you may have heard, former NAPABA Trailblazer Award recipient, Orange County Asian American Bar Association’s (OCAABA) founding president and retired U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Nakazato is currently receiving treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and will need a bone marrow (stem cell) donor soon. As described in the link, his likelihood of finding a matching donor through the national registry is currently slim, because relatively few donors of Asian descent are registered. As OCAABA’s president, spread the word through your fellow memberships to encourage members of Asian descent to sign up with the national registry. Perhaps one of them will end up being a match for Judge Nakazato, or saving another life.
