Frieda Jordan, president of the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry, is scheduled to appear live on “The Larry Zarian Show” Thursday to discuss an upcoming fundraiser and the importance of attracting more donors.
Morre Dean, chief executive of Glendale Adventist Medical Center, which is sponsoring the fundraiser at the Glendale Hilton, also is scheduled to appear on the show.
The worldwide registry of Armenian bone marrow donors is small, at about 15,000 for a population of about 10 million last year. Potential donors typically provide six mouth swabs so that doctors can compile a DNA fingerprint to match with patients.
The show airs at 7 p.m. on Charter Cable Channel 380. The viewer call in number is (818) 547-3668.
