Dear Friends & Family,
My dear friend Lobna's sister Mona has leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplan ASAP. Please you guys read this message I got from Lobna a few hours ago. She explains in it more clearly how we can all help. My opinion is let's all meet at the lab tomorrow and get tested at the same time. If you want to get tested but can't afford the test please tell us and it will be taken care of. Please read the message and get in touch with me or at least share it.
Please you guys, this could happen to anyone of us, and we would expect our friends and family to help.
The message from Lobna:
"Dear sarah and mira- long time no see..i hope u are doing well
im not sure you are aware, but my sister Mona is in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant because she suffers from leukemia and shes been grappling with it for the past two years.
the international database that we've accessed through a hospital in Paris hasnt found a match yet for her tissue type to be the donor. and we are now trying to find one our own way. however the odds are extremely difficult and we need as many people as possible to go in for a simple blood test. the international database is made mostly of europeans and ethnic diversity gives us a better chance of finding the right tissue. if they are a match the donation is also a very simple process.
the lab is downtown, kasr el ainy street and costs 300 l.e. if money is a concern we can cover the cost you partially or fully.
do u think u can go and get tested bokra or the day after? maybe you can take some friends or relatives..our only hope now to find a match is to expand our pool of resources as much as possible. if you agree i can give you all the information about the place etc.
pls tell as much friends and family as possible by word of mouth too. if they cant get tested (they are over 50 or have diabetes, anemia etc) but still want to help they can also sponsor someone else's test.
u can also give them my number to explain 012 314 3202 and keep spreading the word.we need all the help we can possibly get."
May god bless you all
