Help Emru Townsend!

Animation writer and critic Emru Townsend was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and needs to find a matching donor for a bone marrow transplant. His best chance to find a match comes from a donor who shares his ethnic background, he's the Son of two African Caribbean parents, a further challenge is the fact that blacks are underrepresented in Bone marrow registries worldwide. There is info about Emru and how to register to become a donor at a site his folks set up. Please pass this call for help to your friends, maybe there is somebody that can help. Emru is pictured above, at the Ottawa Animation festival, hanging out with Ward Jenkins and myself.
