Will you help us share a million dollars?

Giving Tuesday is coming up on December 1!  If you haven't heard of it before, it's the largest fundraising day of the year, during which charity friends and volunteers come together to drive the wave of support for their chosen cause. 

We hope you will consider supporting our project once again!  This year GlobalGiving is sharing the largest ever bonus with everyone who contributes that day - $1 million.  The money will be allocated among all of the GlobalGiving charities according to the total raised by each.  So the more we raise, the more bonus we will receive!

This year has been tough for most of us, and we know that many of our supporters had financial difficulties.  Still, we have been receiving a steady flow of donations and we are incredibly grateful to you for keeping cancer patients close to your heart.  Thanks to your help, we transferred over $55,000 to bone marrow registry in Germany to benefit nine blood cancer patients. 

Our latest beneficiary is Anna.  She lives in Irkutsk in Siberia and is a mom of two young children.  In February 2019 she suddenly fell ill with high fever.  After an evaluation, she was diagnosed with monoblastic leukemia.  Anna began chemotherapy and even though she had severe side effects - sepsis, brain hemorrhage and kidney failure - she persevered and achieved remission.  However, Anna still needed to undergo bone marrow transplantation from a donor to ensure her remission lasts.  Her sisters were not good matches, and there were no matching donors in the Russian registry, so Anna's doctors had to look abroad.  After finding a match in the German registry, Anna underwent transplantation in October. She is now recovering. Our project was able to transfer 2000 euros to help Anna cover the cost of donor search - and we are so grateful for your support! 

Please join us on December 1 - from midnight to 11:59 p.m. EST and help us support more patients like Anna!
