Reality TV show star Kourtney Kardashian admitted that her cousin Cici has been sickened with cancer for 17 years and that her body is no longer responding to chemo. She is dire need of a bone marrow stem cell transplant from an Armenian donor.
"Because Cici is 100% Armenian she needs to receive bone marrow from an Armenian donor, which means the pool of options is a lot smaller and she’s having a difficult time finding a match.

"We are asking that any of you who are Armenian, have Armenian friends or extended family members consider signing up as a donor at the bone marrow registry, in hopes that we can find a match for Cici and give our beloved cousin many more years to live. Cici explained the process to us, and it’s actually not as intense as you might think. One procedure, called PBSC, is nonsurgical and just like giving blood. You can be in and out of hospital in the same day and might even be able to save a life. We urge that you at least read more about the procedure and tell your Armenian friends of family."
Kourtney also posted a link to the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry where willing good Samaritans can find out more.
