Help Cancer Patients Find Bone Marrow Donors!

by Advita Fund USA
Jun 12, 2013

Support us on June 12th!

Bonus Day is on Wednesday, June 12th!  Starting at 8 am CT (or 17:00 Moscow time), all donations (less than $1,000 per donor) will be matched by GlobalGiving.  Our projects are ranked "Superstar", which means we get the highest match: 50%.   It's a rare opportunity to multiply your impact, so make sure to participate.  Even a nominal donation will help too - a project with the highest number of donors can get an additional bonus of $1,000. 

Dozens of patients in St. Petersburg currently need help with paying off the bills for bone marrow donor searches.  A few are still raising funds for the first installment that will help initiate the search.  One of these patients is Arcady, a teen who has been fighting leukemia for the last 2 years.  He recently had an early relapse, and bone marrow transplant is his only hope for cure.  His parents earn modest income and their savings were drained during the years of their son's illness. 

Join us on Wednesday and help give hope to Arcady and patients like him. 

Thank you!
