Our pride and joy, Rayan, was diagnosed a few weeks ago with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), a form of blood cancer.
Only 3, Rayan is now in URGENT need of a bone marrow transplant. He has not been able to find a perfect match which will increase his chances of survival.
We would like to request you to take a bone marrow compatibility test – it is free, painless and takes 30 seconds. Gender is not relevant, but SOUTH ASIAN ETHNICITY (Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Srilanka etc) is very important, due to the under-representation of South Asians on the national donor registry.
We will be organizing Bone Marrow Donation drives across the country. Please check out the Events tab on the Cure Rayan Facebook page ( LINK ) for venues and schedules.
If you are unable to attend these drives, here are others ways to help:
- Look at the Cure Rayan Facebook page HERE. Browse the various tabs on the page for more information and updates on Rayan, other drive venues and how to volunteer to start a drive in your area (we provide coordination, training and free kits).
- Increase awareness by sharing the Facebook page on your facebook newsfeed, and spread the message by email to ALL your friends and family
We’re extremely grateful to all those who have already reached out to help. Please pray for Rayan, your actions and prayers may help save Rayan’s life.
