Rounding up the year

It's time to report on October Bonus day!   During October we raised $9,357 that allowed us to help two cancer patients with the large outstanding bills from the donor registry. 

One of them is Irina, a young woman with degrees in engineering and psychology.  A year ago she was diagnosed with T-cell leukemia/lymphoma.  Bone marrow transplant that she received in April helped reduce her risk of relapse.  She is doing well and recently returned to work.
 
Another patient is Alexander, a single father of two boys, who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year.  He is now in remission and waiting for the donor to be found. 

Thank you for helping these patients get the life-saving treatment!  There are two more great opportunities this month to increase the impact of your donation. 

- Year-End Giving challenge:  projects with at least 30 donors and $3,000 in donations in December will be able to compete for 9 prizes ranging from $500 to $3,000. 

- Recurring donation match:  Global Giving will give us the amount of your monthly donation if you donate for 3 consecutive months.   Check out this detailed explanation.  It will be available for the last 12 days of the year only (from December 20 to December 31)!

Thanks again for supporting the cancer patients!  Have a joyful holiday season!
