There is a way you could help.



(This is how we play chess!)

This is my niece, Diana. She is an amazing little girl. I feel so lucky to be her aunt. A month ago she got very sick and we didn't know what it was-- She is in the hospital now. It's a little hard to write about but this sweet little girl is really struggling right now. I'm visiting her as much as I can. Here parents have been amazing and very strong. Family and friends are all pitching in to help. We'll fight this and we'll win!

And there is a way you could help.

She has a rare disorder called HLH. It strikes only 1/1,000,000 young people. So, she may need a bone marrow transplant soon. It is always hard to find a match. So, I'm pestering everyone I know to sign up to be a donor! THIS MEANS YOU. If you don't help Diana you may help someone else. So, please sign up. It's easy! They will mail you a swab to swab your mouth and then if a match is found you will be contacted.

If you sign up let me know. I want to get 100 people to sign up and I'm keeping count.
