Searching for a stem cell donor
22-year-old Kriti is an ambitious commerce graduate from St. Columbus’s College in the small town of Hazaribagh, Jharkhand who has been fighting against Chronic Myeloid Leukemia for 10 years now. To treat CML, she was prescribed medication that has had other side effects, due to which she urgently needs a stem cell transplant.
Kriti dreams of becoming a boutique owner one day, but these dreams have been turned around due to her condition. It is in your hands to #TurnItAround for her and give her a second chance at life.
Patient Testimonial: “My parents have taught me to be kind and help anyone who is in need, and especially those who I can help easily. Leukemia has slowed me down but I want to overcome it, study well and become a Fashion Designer. I aspire to have my designer boutique some day. Please do register with this simple process of filling a web form and submitting a cheek swab, to help me and other patients like me.”
Family Testimonial: “Kriti and many other patients like her are in dire need of a blood stem cell transplant as the only option for a life saving treatment. She has been surviving on medicines ever since we got her diagnosis. Her medicines for CML, a form of Leukemia (Blood Cancer) have weakened her body but not her fighting spirit. Only a blood stem cell transplant from a Tissue matching HLA donor, can ensure a second chance at life for her and other patients of blood cancer and blood disorders. The fact that there is a lack of awareness there aren’t many registered potential donors is something we are battling against as a family. None of the family members are a HLA-match for her, but you can sign up as a potential life-saver who could be a HLA-match for Kriti to save her life. We urge anyone eligible to register as a potential Life-saver, which is a very simple process.” – Vivek (Kriti’s brother).
