Does this adorable little boy remind you of your son? He is a lot like most four year olds except he is sick and desperately searching for a generous individual to save his life.
Kyle Crawford is a half-Chinese, half-Caucasian 4-year-old with aplastic anemia - a condition where the body does not produce enough new blood cells and is fatal within six months without a bone marrow transplant. Of the 9 million registered bone marrow donors, a match hasn’t been found for Kyle yet. Kyle's family is searching for half-Asian/half-Caucasian donors to increase the likelihood of a match. Getting tested to be a bone marrow donor is as simple as swabbing your cheek.
Ten years ago, finding a match for Kyle would have been extremely difficult. But as social media has connected our world more than ever before, today chances of finding a half-Asian/half-Caucasian donor to help save Kyle’s life are better than ever.
Even if you don’t know a match, someone you know might. You can “Like” and follow Kyle’s cause through his Facebook Page and Twitter profile. Visit http://www.facebook.com/KyleNeedsYou and https://twitter.com/kyleneedsyou.
We can make a difference in Kyle's life.
