Six years ago on January 21, 2012, Earl Young was given a second chance at life by a bone marrow donor – Christine Waag, a complete stranger who lives on the other side of the world in Offenburg, Germany. Only a few months earlier, Earl had been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, an aggressive type of blood cancer.
Because Christine had swabbed her cheek and registered with DKMS Delete Blood Cancer, which is the oldest and largest organization focused on increasing awareness and registering bone marrow donors, a match was made in time to save Earl’s life!
You too could save a life!
