Aiden

Aiden is an eight-year-old boy who has been diagnosed with Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH).  HLH is a rare, aggressive disease of the immune system that usually occurs in infants and young children. 

Aiden's best chance of a cure is to find his lifesaving bone marrow/stem cell donor. You could be the person who can save Aiden's life! 

Because matches are based on inherited tissue types, they are most likely to be found between those who share a similar genetic heritage or ethnicity. 

Aiden's ideal match will most likely will be someone of Persian/Iranian descent.
