6yr old Jasmina of New York City was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia on January 20th, 2009. Her doctors immediately determined her only chance for survival is a bone marrow transplant but she did not have a match. Because of great media attention, more than 10,000 African Americans joined the marrow registry through DKMSamericas.org and two matches were found in a matter of months. She had her transplant on June 11th and is currently in recovery. oneforjasmina.com
UPDATE: Sad news, Jasmina passed away on January 27th, 2010. There is more to this story and I promise to elaborate soon.
