I am writing to request that you assist us in our attempts to save the life of Cathy Anagnostopoulos, a young Toronto mother of three. Cathy has leukemia and is in desperate need of a stem cell transplant to save her life. The family has been told that the chances of finding a match are greater among people of Greek decent. Also, donors under 30 are the absolute ideal.
This website will tell you more about Cathy and her fight. www.helpsavecathy.com.
You should know that being tested to be a match is as simple as swabbing the inside of your mouth. IF someone were a match, donating stem cells is usually as simple as donating blood. What a gift and honour it would be for any donor to know that they saved a life!!
Please note that registering to be a donor can be done on-line with a follow-up swab kit received in the mail. The link is also provided through Cathy’s website, but can be reached at www.onematch.ca. As an alternative, there are several upcoming swabbing clinics in Toronto over the next few weeks. They are also listed on Cathy’s website.
