My family needs your help!! A few months ago, we received devasting news that my sister, Andrea (Demetriou) Kalliaras, has a rare form of Leukemia that can only be cured by a stem cell transplant. I have always been very protective of my sister and always looked out for her. But this time I can’t personally help her which tears me apart inside. My sister is not only my best friend but literally like a second mother to my three girls ages 16, 14 and 12.
We are looking for an Angel on this Earth of Greek and/or Cypriot descent between the ages of 18 and 55 to check and see if they are a match to help my sister. On occasion, matches are found between patients and donors of different ethnic groups, so even if you are not Greek or Cypriot, please register! To determine if someone is a match It is a 10-second cheek swab in the convenience of your home via a free kit that is mailed directly to you. If you are a match, technology has advanced so much that the cells could be taken from your blood in a non-invasive way. Additionally, for whoever is a match all costs including transportation, if needed, to and from the nearest blood lab is 100% covered. Please help us in this time of need!
I am asking everyone to please like and share this post and even share via other social media outlets as well as possibly emailing the information directly to any Greek or Cypriot; people, organizations, associations and/or churches you know in the USA as well as Greece, Cyprus, Germany, the UK or anywhere in the world!
