A beautiful eleven year-old Atlanta girl needs your help. I don’t know Valaria personally, I just happened to see her story on 11Alive tonight. I was impressed with her attitude; admired her beauty and composure; and touched by her plight, her “Slice of Life” as my son would say. Valaria is battling Sickle-Cell Anemia and she needs a bone marrow transplant. As an only child, there are no siblings for possible donor matches.
Friday, September 7, 2012, 11Alive is teaming up with BE A MATCH, a National Donor Program, to find a marrow match for Valaria. Spelman College will be hosting Rally For Valaria from 10 a.m. through 7:30 p.m. at the Spelman Lower Manley Student Center and outside at the College’s monthly “Market Friday” event. Parking is available on the Spelman College deck, just inside the entrance gate.
The match test is simple and painless, a cotton swab brushed inside the mouth….I’m certain Valaria will appreciate your help.
Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:4
