Adam Krief is 31. He loves his wife and their 3 small children. He has a lifelong passion for L.A. Lakers. He also has blood cancer. A matching bone marrow donation – in his case! – is THE CURE. He will die unless a matching bone marrow donor is found, QUICKLY. See Adam before hospitalization.
Adam was diagnosed on July 1st of this year with a rare – and terminal – type of blood cancer (primary myelofibrosis). He is being given chemotherapy not as a treatment but to afford him time to find a matching donor. The donation that Adam Krief needs is a peripheral blood stem cell donation. (PBS is a type of non-surgical blood donation.) Out of the over 13 million people currently registered as donors, none is a match for Adam. Several thousand people have already stepped up to help, but so far no match was found. Adam Krief’s cause is supported by communities throughout the United States and internationally. Kim Kardashian asked her fans to get tested for a possible match for Adam Krief. The effort is snowballing.
According to BeTheMatch.org, blood cancer is the number two cause of cancer death in the United States. When it comes to children, no other disease kills more children than blood cancer.
