Anya is a nine-year-old New Jersey native. Anya is just like any other fourth grade girl. She likes watching movies on Netflix, playing Minecraft, and doing arts and crafts.
But unlike other fourth grade girls, Anya is battling leukemia. She was first diagnosed in kindergarten and went into remission in third grade. During this school year, Anya learned that her leukemia had returned. The doctors believe her best chance for a full recovery is a bone marrow transplant. Despite her own battle, Anya has found a way to give back to other girls with cancer. During her second week at the hospital, Anya donated her hair to help other kids with cancer.
Be the hope that Anya needs, register to become her lifesaving bone marrow donor at
Cory is a 40-year-old Arkansas native. He works as utility buyer and is a Deacon at St. Mark Baptist Church. 
Two months ago, Cory learned that he had aplastic anemia. Doctors quickly decided that he would need a bone marrow transplant to have a shot at full recovery. Cory’s brother was tested and sadly was not a match. Now they are turning to the national registry and their community for help.

Cory’s church recently hosted a drive in his honor to add more people to the registry. “Some people may not understand why this has happened to me, but I understand that this is my mission. I know that I have been put here by God for this purpose. There is no reason that many people can't find a matching donor, we can do something to change that,” says Cory.
