    How do Gary and I get tested for a possible match?

    Hey Julie, we’re not quite to that point yet, although I’m meeting with the transplant team at MD Anderson in March. If and when we get to that point, they’ll let us know how to get potential donors tested (just a blood test.) Thank you! -KDF
