A Season For Giving – Part 4 – A 2nd Chance At Life

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Help us greet the new year with a 2nd chance at life!

With your financial contribution, you are supporting us in fulfilling our mission to save more lives…to give more patients that 2nd chance at life. Funds that we raise help us recruit potential bone marrow donors and add them to the Be The Match donor registry.

donate and make a difference

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the Icla da Silva Foundation and help us host more drives, recruit more donors, and aid more families in need.

 

Specifically, we need to add more potential life savers who are ethnically diverse. All minority segments are under represented and those patients are much less likely to find a matching donor.

With your help we can change this unfortunate fact.

 

 

We need to recruit more people like Michael Powell, who registered through Icla da Silva in 2007. He received the call that he was a match, not once, but twice. He generously donated his stem cells in 2013, and then he gave his life saving bone marrow in 2017.

His bone marrow was successfully transplanted into Aunesti Sullivan, and she began her 2nd chance at life on June 2, 2017 at the age of 12. She is doing great and living the active life of a young teenager – thanks to Michael.

Please help us recruit more people like Michael and add more hope for the 14,000 patients who are in need each year. Even a small financial donation will help us give more patients like Aunesti a 2nd chance at life.
