    SWAB YOUR CHEEK FOR EZRA at Curious George Books and Toys!


    Ezra is 8 months old and loves the alphabet, music and his tricycle .Ezra has a rare primary immune deficiency disorder called Hyper IgM Syndrome and is in need of a bone marrow transplant to survive. Since tissue type is inherited, Ezra’s best chance of finding a genetically matched donor lies with those of Jewish ancestry. However, there are many patients of all backgrounds in need of donors for transplants, so we encourage everyone to join the registry.


    You may be Ezra’s miracle match.  Please come to Curious George Books and Toys on Sunday, December 12, 2010 between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to register.
