Marrow Drive on 12/30/12 in Beloit

“Cancer can’t stop princesses!” says Jamaya Johnson, age 14.

In October 2011 Jamaya was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and after being in remission twice her cancer is now back for a third time. For the last two years Jamaya has had hundreds of medical appointments and hasn’t even been healthy enough to attend school. She desperately needs a marrow cell transplant to save her life. Like most patients Jamaya does not have a match in her family and must rely on an unrelated donor.

Jamaya is most likely to match an African American donor but right now only 7% of registry members are African American. This makes it even harder for patients like Jamaya to find a match. Could you be the one to save her life?
