Olivia Perez Banet is a 32-year-old wife and mother of 2 who was born and raised in Elizabethtown, KY. In April of 2014, her life changed forever when she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. After months of struggling through treatments and chemotherapy, doctors have determined she needs a bone marrow transplant. Currently, she has no matches.
There are more than 13,000 patients with blood cancers and blood diseases searching for a bone marrow transplant match. More than half will never receive one due to lack of donors on the registry. You can help these patients beat the odds. If you are between 18-55, it only takes a few minutes and the swab of a cheek to see if you could be a life-saving match for Olivia or other patients in need!
