Join a Blood Drive, Save a Six-Year Old Girl's Life
by Staff

Six-year old Jasmina Anema is dying from leukemia, and her only chance of surviving rests on someone like you.

Jasmina, who lives in New York City, is suffering from a rare and aggressive form of the disease, and requires a bone marrow transplant. Without one, it is unlikely that she will survive much more than a month from now.

That task is made all the more difficult because Jasmina is African-American, and African-Americans are under-represented in worldwide donor registries.

"As a father myself, it is awful to see such a little girl have to fight such a challenging disease like leukemia," said Paul. "I encourage the African American community to join the National Registry to help children like Jasmina."

There are a number of upcoming blood drives, including one in the Boston area:

Sunday, April 5th
11:00 AM-4:00 PM
316 Huntington Ave
Boston, MA

Sunday, March 29, 2009

I am praying for Jasmina. No

I am praying for Jasmina. No baby should have to go through that. I love Paul Pierce on the court, but you are not just a good ball player, you are a beautiful person. It takes a wonderful person to help the way you are doing. It has nothing to do with fame. It has to do with the beautiful life of a little girl that you never even knew of until now. God is very proud of you right now.

Another NYC Blood Drive for Jasmina

Will there be future NYC Blood Drives for Jasmina? If so, when?
