Adam Krief With Two Of His Children

Adam Krief With Two Of His Children

Anything L.A. Magazine helped spread the news about Adam Krief’s pursuit of a matching bone marrow donor. We watched the pursuit’s progress. Thousands of people came forward to get tested. (There are MANY caring and compassionate people out there!) Unfortunately, no matching donor was found, yet.

Having watched the search for a matching donor from the sidelines, Anything L.A. Magazine is now preparing to hold a Bone Marrow Donor Drive of our own in the hope of finding a match for Adam Krief, before it’s too late.

Bone Marrow Donor Drive isn’t quite what the name suggests. No one will be donating bone marrow during the drive. It is really about getting TESTED. The test involves a Q-Tip swab inside a cheek: no blood or pain is involved!

Consider getting tested! One of us is THE CURE for Adam Krief. Right now, it’s about Adam. Considering the fact how common and deadly blood cancer is, down the line it might be about someone you love.

Hope 4 Adam

Adam Krief with one of his babies

Our fellow Angeleno, Adam Krief is 31. He is married and has three children, the oldest is just 3 years old.

In July Adam was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of blood cancer. The disease is terminal but a bone marrow transplant can cure it.

None of the currently 13 million people on the bone marrow donor registry is a match for Adam Krief. Together with his wife Lia, Adam launched Hope For Adam on Facebook. In only 10 days over 3,000 registered to help. Still, a match wasn’t found.

Many potential donors – including the perfect match for Adam Krief! – are afraid of the test. The test is PAINLESS and involves only a swab that determines compatibility. The life-saving bone marrow transplant itself (for the donor!) is a little more than donating blood.

Saving Adam’s life won’t cause you pain. It won’t make you weak or sick. It won’t shorten your life. It will require very little of your time. BUT if you happen to be a match…. You’ll be a Hero forever. You, one person, can positively affect the lives of – at least! – five people!

Adam Krief is running out of time and is currently receiving chemotherapy to extend his life until a match for his bone marrow transplant is found. He can’t wait long. Blood cancer is the second deadliest cancer in America. Please act NOW!
