Raisa is a history student, with a particular interest in archeology. Last summer, after returning from an expedition, she began feeling unwell. A visit to a doctor showed a blood test abormality, and soon after, Raisa was shocked to learn that she had leukemia. Four cycles of chemotherapy put her in remission, but unfortunately, it did not last. In March 2012 Raisa relapsed, and now she can only have a hope of a cure if she undergoes bone marrow transplant from a donor. Her family does not have a matching donor, which means she needs to search for an unrelated donor from abroad.
Please help Raisa cover the costs of bone marrow donor search in the registry in Germany. Thank you!
