Hope For Natalie Nakatani

Hope For Natalie Nakatani
Video from Patrick Biesemans on Vimeo.

Natalie is 8yrs old and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia. (AML) After 5 rounds of chemo, Natalie was in remission, but as of 1/19/10 her cancer is back. Her only chance for survival is a bone marrow transplant. Please register to donate. You could be the one to save her life. Go to dkmsamericas.org or HopeForNatalie.com

The current odds for an ethnic minority patient, like Natalie to find a matching unrelated donor may be close to 1 in a million. This is the reason they are trying so hard to reach as many people in the Asian population as possible. The more Asians we get swabbed, the more likely Natalie will find her “Needle In A Hay-Stack” match. Please spread the word to get people interested in the fight to SAVE Natalie’s life.
