Michael Daykin recently went through his first round of chemo therapy.
The Toronto man was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia just months ago.
Daykin is hoping to find a bone-marrow donor soon, particularly with a child on the way.
“It’s difficult. The timing is bad to say the least. It’s very stressful and hard on the people around me who love me, my family, my wife, my friends. For me, I do have an optimistic outlook,” he said.
Daykin was adopted so he doesn’t have any blood relatives, aside from his twin brother who is a partial match.
He needs a full donor and he’s looking to the Aboriginal community.
