Jeff Chiba Stearns' documentary 'Mixed Match'
People of mixed ethnicity - often Asian and Caucasian - are one of the largest growing demographics in North America. But it's also a group that is least likely to sign-up for bone marrow registries.
Many people of mixed ancestry are being diagnosed with life-threatening blood illnesses, like leukemia, only to find that there is no one on the bone marrow registry that matches their type. It can be the difference between life and death.
Filmmaker Jeff Chiba Stearns is painting a portrait of many such people - and raising awareness about the need to register as a donor in his new documentary 'Mixed Match'.
