Help us Find Krissy’s Match!

Krissy Kobata was like any other fun-loving, 26 year old, up until 2008 when she was diagnosed with a blood disorder called Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). Typically MDS is diagnosed in people who are typically 65+, Krissy is a vibrant youngwoman! The only cure is a bone marrow transplant. Ethnicity is a key factor in finding a bone marrow "match" and Krissy's family is of mixed heritage - Japanese and Caucasian - also known as Hapa, has made it more difficult for her to find a donor match. More diverse donors are needed! Especially Hapa donors! As of yet, none of Krissy's family members have been a match and so we are asking for the help and generosity of others to save our Krissy's life!

PLEASE, if you haven't registered as a bone marrow donor, do so as soon as possible. Her life and many, many others depend on people like you who are willing to help a stranger. 

 

Together we can make it Hapa’n!
