Off topic- Save Nina! Register to be a bone marrow donor and save a life! : )

Hello! I hope this is an appropriate off topic post, but this is a pretty important message for me to share! A friend of my friend is running out of time to find a bone marrow donor and we are trying to spread the word for people to register to become a potential donor.

 

Nina Polvanich Louie has lymphoma, and she has only 2 months to find a bone marrow donor. Lymphoma can be treated, but Nina has not found a match in the registry. Nina is married with a 2 year old child and is fighting for her life and the well being of her family.

 

 

Registration involves a simple cotton swab of your cheek (mailed or in person) and you will be registered in a database. If you match with a person who needs a donor, then you will be contacted to donate bone marrow.

 

Please register! Help Nina or thousands of other people hoping to find a match. You could truly save a life.

Learn more about registering and the individuals who need donors. Read success stories about matches, and read memories from families whose loved ones could not find a match in the registry in time. Definitely worth it.

Thanks kd006 Smiley Happy  I appreciate that you're already signed up & willing to help someone out there!  You're awesome!!

Re: Off topic- Save Nina! Register to be a bone marrow donor and save a life! : )

I wish you and Nina the best of luck!!  I am half Chinese half Caucasian and just learned of how incredibly difficult it is for Asians and part Asians to get bone marrow matches.  It prompted me to register to be a donor and to start getting involved in advocacy.

 

Good for you for bringing awareness to such an important issue!

 

I will be keeping Nina and her beautiful family in my thoughts. <3

Thanks DCFoodie Smiley Happy  I think its fantastic that you're an advocate!!  In the recent months, I've met so many people willing to help spread the word for our family & the other families like Nina's... they really dedicate their lives to helping others.  Anyone willing to do that is top notch in my book!!

Re: Off topic- Save Nina! Register to be a bone marrow donor and save a life! : )

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone looking for matches- and those who love them.

Re: Off topic- Save Nina! Register to be a bone marrow donor and save a life! : )

So sweet of you starletta8 Smiley Happy  Well wishes & hellos mean a lot to my daughter, so I'm sure Nina (and everyone looking) would appreciate it too!
