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.
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.
