Gift of Life is a national, publicly available bone marrow registry and cord blood bank that serves patients all over the world for bone marrow transplants. And they are currently trying to find a match for Ezra, a 22-month-old boy who loves the alphabet, music and his tricycle with a rare primary immune deficiency called Hyper IgM Syndrome, and others like him. The only cure is a stem cell transplant. These children need to find donors that are perfect matches for them. Here is how WE ALL CAN HELP.....
Please join us Thursday, January 20th at 1pm EST for the Gift of Life’s ‘The Time is Now’ Twitter Party to learn more about Gift of Life and discover how easy (and painless) it is to become a potential donor. In keeping with the ‘time’ theme, Gift of Life will be giving away some very cool fashion watches during the party. They also will be announcing a very special offer for party attendees only — an easy way you will be able to get involved if you choose to do so. All it will take is a quick, easy and painless swab of your cheek! Please follow them on Twitter and register here for the Twitter party.
Check out the following video to see how easy it can be to become a donor.
For more information on Gift of Life Foundation, please visit their Facebook page and consider being a donor, or at least getting the swab done, you can make the decision later. PLUS, they can always use monetary donations if you are unable to be a donor.
I have sent away for my swab kit, won't you join me in helping someone like Ezra?
Hope to see you on Twitter on the 20th....
