Sharon urgently needs donor match to save her life, can public help?

Sharon urgently needs donor match to save her life, can public help?

A mother of two, Sharon Berger will next week be starting chemotherapy treatment for a leukaemia condition in order to prepare her body for a bone marrow transplant in about 6 weeks time, unfortunately we do not currently have a good match, it really is a race against time.

A match for her is most likely to come from within the Jewish community.But we encourage everyone to register and check if they might be the match she needs

Please help with one or more of the following in order to hopefully get more people to sign up to the stem cell register quickly. Please share on any mailing lists you have access to:

The power of the network: please forward this to as many people as you can, be they family members, friends, colleagues, clients, etc. More information via:http://is.gd/Spit4Mum

If you are 16-30: and not on the Anthony Nolan stem cell register, please consider requesting a spit kit in order to send a sample of saliva in the post – it only takes a few minutes to do. More details can be found from the links here, including eligibility criteria: http://is.gd/Spit4Mum

If you are under 50: and able to give blood, please consider going to a blood donor centre or a local donor session and asking to have your stem cells screened at the same time, more details here: http://is.gd/Donate4Mum

If you are already on the register: please make sure your details are up to date, if you can’t be found, you can’t be a lifesaver, more details here: http://is.gd/Update4Mum

If you are on Twitter: please use the hashtag #Spit4Mum to spread the word.

There is also the possibility of setting up clinics, however due to the urgency and the ease of joining via post hopefully the power of email, our own networks and social networking will enable the numbers of people on the register to be increased quickly and help the many people in the world in need of an urgent transplant be it Caroline’s Mum, someone else’s Mum, a relative, friend or stranger.

Many thanks for your help, it is very much appreciated.
