Sophia really likes to roller skate and participate in P.E. at school. However, most of the time her energy level is very low and she struggles to keep up with her classmate because she is smaller than most. Sophia was born with Hemoglobin E-Beta Thalassemia disease. She requires monthly blood transfusions and takes daily medication to make sure her immune system functions properly. Sophia wishes she can live a “normal life” with, no more blood transfusions or medication. Her blood disease is treatable with a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. Because Sophia is Lao and Cambodian, her best chance for a match would be from someone who is also Lao, Cambodian or Asian descent. Help make Sophia’s wish come true and register today!
