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.
