little girl fighting rare and fatal leukemia needs your help!

7 Mar


Do what you can to help this little one, we hope there’s a cure out there…

The Daily News states:

Jasmina Anema turns 6 years old Wednesday, and the birthday party planned for her – with a fashion show, cake and an appearance by singer Kelly Rowland – is a dream come true.

But the celebration could be Jasmina’s last.

The bubbly Greenwich Villagekindergartner is suffering from a rare and especially fatal form of leukemia that doctors fear will take her life within two months unless she receives a bone-marrow transplant.

Jasmina’s family – and celebrities like Rihanna and NBA star Paul Pierce, who were touched by her plight – hope a donor drive Saturday will produce the match needed to save her.

Jasmina’s donor drive will be held Saturday at Public School 41 (116 W. 11th St.) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, contact DKMS, a nonpprofit marrow donor center: (866)-340-3567.
