Urgent Bone Marrow Drive for Filipina American Filmmaker

February 24, 2006

Christine's family has struggled a lot, with three of her four siblings battling cancer. Acording to her website: "Three days before New Years Day, Christine found out that her cancer was back. And this time, neither chemotherapy nor a stem cell transplant was going to work. Christine needed a bone marrow transplant, and to do that, she needed a matching donor."

Here are some upcoming drives:
