Katharina Harf's life was forever changed when her mother passed away in 1990 from blood cancer, unable to find a perfect matching donor.  With the loss of her mother though, Katharina found her life's mission: to ensure that every patient in need of a bone marrow transplant has a matching donor and receives a second chance at life. #quotes #inspiration #womenshistorymonth #womenonfire #fierce #deletebloodcancer #nonprofit #dkms
Six months afters registering with us, Alisha got the call that she was a match for a patient with #leukemia. Without hesitation, @alisharodebaugh  went in for her bone marrow donation and is now praying her cells will help heal her recipient! Thanks for your selflessness, Alisha.

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.
