Kim Kardashian - Help Cousin Cici Find a Bone Marrow Donor

This is difficult for me to write, but we really need your help. My cousin, Cici, has been battling cancer for 17 years. She’s been going through chemo for such a long time, but now the cancer is not responding to the chemo and she needs a bone marrow stem cell transplant. This necessary procedure would hopefully give our Cici many more years to live!

What makes this more difficult is that the donor must be of Armenian descent because Cici is Armenian. We are asking every Armenian who reads this message to reach out to the bone marrow registry and sign up so that we can find a match for Cici.

Donating bone marrow is actually not as scary as it sounds. Before Cici told me all about it, I thought it was this really intense procedure, but it’s really not. There are two ways to donate and your doctor will decide which is the best method for you. The PBSC donation is nonsurgical and is basically like giving blood. You can read about this procedure here. Then there’s the marrow donation procedure, which takes place in an operating room at a hospital where a general anesthesia or regional anesthesia is administered. You lay on your stomach and the doctor makes a tiny incision (less than a quarter of an inch) through the skin at the back of the pelvic bone then the doctor inserts a needle and draws out the marrow. There is absolutely no pain during the procedure and most people go home that same afternoon.

Please help our family’s plea by signing up and pray that we all can save Cici’s life!

Here is the link where you can register to be a donor as well as find out more information about the procedure.

Thank you guys!!! Please keep Cici in your prayers. Xo

        Kim I’m praying for Cici. I’ve lost too many family members to cancer. It’s such a hard thing to cope with and its hard seeing your loved ones suffer like that. I pray that God will give her a miracle and she will find a match. If I could give a donation I promise you I would because cancer is something that’s close to my heart. I love you so much! We’re always here for you and may God be with Cici every step of the way. She WILL get better! Xo

    We have to find a cure for cancer. We are losing too many precious lives.

    • farzeen02  |   Posted on Feb 6th, 2013

      i agree. i have lost a lot of family members to cancer.

    • alessandraaa  |   Posted on Feb 7th, 2013

      Its so hard to believe that there is no cure for cancer! I just wish I could become a doctor and work my bum off until I find one. It’s seriously taking over no matter how well you eat, or how healthy you are. I recently lost my Zia (aunt in Italian) to cancer, she was the most healthiest woman in the world, and we lost her to this disease. It’s unbelievable and I hope that there will be a cure one day.

    You have such a huge family, why can’t one of you do it?

  8. kkzthebest!  |   Posted on Feb 6th, 2013

    So sorry to hear of this news!! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, Cici included. As a transplant recipient myself, I wish her nothing but the best of luck!! I hope God finds a way to help her!!
