Montsho is an Austin-born poet, writer, visual artist and musician. Last Christmas, he was diagnosed with acute leukemia. His doctors are hopeful that a half-match donor will be the solution, despite the fact that people of color face slimmer odds of finding a match on the national registry. His parents are hosting a registration drive called #OneSwabOneLife at the @urbanmusicfest this weekend. Montsho’s goal is to bring more people of color to the registry. He is scheduled to have his half-match transplant in April. We wish you all the best, @Montsho!

Briana Donis was diagnosed with #AplasticAnemia a year ago. Today, the 19-year-old is in isolation at the Texas Children’s Medical Center due to her compromised immune system. Despite her condition, she posts herself in a yoga pose every day on her Instagram (@bridonkeyy).
She told BuzzFeed Life, “I like yoga because it challenges the inner me and the physical me. I started it because it was a challenge that I knew if I put my mind to it, I could do it. It wasn’t the kind of exercise I was used to. It was more personal. It was my own journey and not just a physical one.” #yoga #peace #yogis  #deletebloodcancer #womenonfire  #aplasticanemia #transplant #hope #tuesday #terrifictuesdays #tranquility
Shira Klein was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2014. After enduring months of intense chemotherapy and multiple relapses, Shira was told she would need a bone marrow transplant. In hopes of finding Shira a matching donor, her husband, family and friends joined together to launch the Smiles4Shira Facebook page and website. Their efforts helped register more than 10,000 potential donors, resulting in more than 110 matches for patients. Shira found her match in 2014. As a result of its success, the Smiles4Shira initiative continues today. In honor of Women’s History Month, we celebrate amazing women like  @shibopp that push our mission further.

As a mother, Kathy Goldberg teaches her children the values of generosity, kindness, and living life with a purpose.  So, when she got the call that she was a match for a patient in need she knew she had an opportunity to show her children the meaning behind those values. 
Thank you for your generosity Kathy#deletebloodcancer #prouddonor #donor #dkms #savelives #beatcancer
For #internationaldayofhappiness we want to share what makes u happy. Our office ritual is to ring the bell for each hero that has donated. This is one of our most fulfilling moments because it is a reminder of why we come into the office  everyday. Today we ran the bell for 6 successful transplants. #dkms #deletebloodcancer #cancersucks #bell #transplant #survivor #giving #saveslives #happy #beatcancer

At 8 months of Hania's life she was diagnosed with a dangerous form of leukemia and immediately began a grueling chemotherapy regimen. Over the next 2 years, Hania underwent treatments and therapy that finally led her and her family to the amazing day in July 2014 when she was declared cancer free! Unfortunately in January, during a routine follow-up exam Hania's parents found their world turned upside down again. Hania's leukemia was back and more aggressive than before. Please share Hania's story and encourage your friends and family to register. If everyone could get one person to register we could drastically change the odds for patients like Hania.
