Help Us Find Krissy a Match!
Krissy Kobata was 25 when she was diagnosed with a blood disorder called Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) that will eventually require a bone marrow transplant. MDS is a primary bone marrow condition, where her bone marrow does not produce normal blood cells. The condition is otherwise known as "pre-leukemia".
Ethnicity is a key factor in finding a bone marrow "match" and Krissy's family is of mixed heritage - Japanese and Caucasian - which has made it more difficult for her to find a donor match. More diverse donors are needed!
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.
