Shira, loving wife and mother of three, needs your help.  Shira was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma on New Years Eve 2010.  Shira has courageously undergone serveral rounds of chemotherapy treatment and transplant with her own stem cells.   After another relapse, she learned that she will need a stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor.

At this time, there are no matches in the public registry and WE NEED YOUR HELP.  Here's what you can do:

  • Join the registry with a simple swab from the inside of your cheek.  By clicking "Register as a Donor" on this screen, you will be able to order a kit in the mail that will be sent directly to your home.
  • Make a tax-deductible donation.  Each test kits incurs a $60 laboratory processing fee and your generosity will help send donor kits to the lab.  100% of your donation will be used to process test kits.
  • Organize a bone marrow recruitment drive in your community. Contact recruitment@giftoflife.org or call 1-800-9MARROW to schedule one today. 

So many patients with diseases like Shira's require a stem cell transplant, and there are thousands who are unable to find a donor to save their lives.  You can be the one to help save a life.
