Thank you for your question. It is likely that the best match will be from someone of English-Greek heritage. However, there is a chance that someone of a different mix could be a good match such as someone of Irish-Greek heritage. There is also the possibility of a match with someone else looking for a stem cell donor, now, or in a few years time.
No one knows if they are a match for a specific patient before they join the register. So the best thing to do is sign up. You could save a life today or years into the future.
