Thank you for visiting us!
Anna and Raul, aged 5 and 7, have been recently diagnosed with a rare disease called Fanconi’s Anemia.
As a result of that, Raul needs a bone marrow transplant. Anna still does not require transplantation and the doctors are now struggling to prevent the disease progression and trying to avoid the transplantation. Unfortunately the closest relatives are not compatible donors.
Like Raul, thousands of patients are looking for a marrow donor. We ask you to consider becoming a donor. The first step to becoming a bone marrow donor is to join the “Be The Match Registry®”. Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases need a bone marrow transplant. Doctors search the “Be The Match Registry” to find donors who match their patients.
Like our sons, thousands of patients hope for a bone marrow donor who can make their life-saving transplant possible. They depend on people like you. You have the power to save a life. Take the first step today!
