For my dear followers from outland......
Maybe you do not know her personally but she is a 29 year old young mother of a 3 years old boy and patient of leukemia (blood cancer). Today, she had to start chemotherapy at 9 Eylul University Hospital in Izmir, Turkey. (Dokuz Eylül University Hospital-IZMIR. Hematology Service, Oncology Storey 1, Room no: 4865)
The type of her Leukemia is AML M5 (Acute myoloblast leukemia)
She had stem cell therapy before but there has been a metastases. That is why she needs marrow transplant. Her family and friends are in a search for the right match of marrow from donor pools in Turkey.
The chance of a match from close relatives is 1% , from donor pool is 1/40.000. Unfortunately, in Turkey there are only 2 pools of blood in Istanbul and Ankara and in Istanbul there are only 27.000 donors.
EVERYBODY CAN BE A BONE MARROW DONOR VERY EASILY!!
All you have to do is to go to your nearest health care office and ask for blood donation to be able to be a bone marrow donor.
