Potential matching donors can quickly provide a sample, which involves rubbing a swab against the inside of a person's cheek for about 10 seconds with the approximate pressure of a toothbrush. People not able to attend but who would like to test and see if they're a matching bone-marrow donor for Grace can order a swab kit sent to their home by going online to http:marrow.org, the online home of National Marrow Donor Program.
