I got this a little late. From the Press-Telegram:
[Krissy] Kobata's rare condition is compounded by the lack of a bone-marrow match, which doctors say is now an urgent need. Kobata's family is of mixed heritage - Japanese and Caucasian - which has made it more difficult for her to find a donor match. Kobata's brother, her only sibling, is not a match.

Kobata's family and the Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches, an affiliate of the National Marrow Donor Program, have arranged for bone-marrow drives in Los Angeles County, including Long Beach.


The only drive that hasn't passed a yet is this one:
Southeast Japanese School and Cultural Center, 14615 Gridley Road, Norwalk; July 26, 3 to 8 p.m., and July 27, 2to 6 p.m.

FYI... The correct street name for the SEJS is Gridley Road in Norwalk.
