Hope for Kai

One of my longtime customers, Birgit Anderson, wrote to tell me her son, Kai, has been diagnosed with leukemia and is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. I offered to spread the word and try and help. His doctors are looking for a suitable donor and your help is needed.

You can help Kai by coming to a bone marrow donor drive in the New York area and registering as a donor. If you can't attend the bone marrow drive, please visit for a free kit you can use at home. Then help spread the word by forwarding this message to everyone who may be able to help.

Kai's website says:
The only assurance we can offer our children, and the most valuable lesson we can teach them, is that while bad things in life can't be prevented, their load can be shared. Please do what you can to help us share this one.
We will be ordering a test kit for our family in the hopes that we can help Kai or someone else in need. For more information on the bone marrow drive or about Kai and his family, visit his website.
