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.

Yay!  I'm glad you were able to register!  It's truly heartwarming when people tell me they've registered.  I'm hoping to inspire a ton more people when we have a drive later this month here at Sephora Smiley Happy  *fingers crossed*

I'm not asian or filipino or anything, but I'd love to help if I can! :] I am here in VA, is there an easy way to get tested?

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

Absolutely! You can order a home kit. They will mail it to you with instructions and cotton swabs, then you just mail it back in. Thank you so much! : )

I would order a kit, but I don't want to waste their kits or money, especially since I am not ethnic in any way! :/ I will tell some of my ethnic friends though! :]

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

Thank you for the support! Any ethnicity is good too, my friend that matched was Caucasian, so it can happen to anyone! : )

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

My entire family registered when they had a clinic in my home town. Best wishes for a match! 

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

That's awesome! What a great family! : )
