Meet Shannon Tavarez. She is only eleven years old, but has already experienced more in her short life than many experience in a lifetime. She has a budding career as a Broadway actress- you may have seen her perform as young Nala in Disney’s The Lion King. However, Shannon’s career was put on hold when she was diagnosed with leukemia a few months ago. Now she is braving daily doses of chemotherapy and needs a bone marrow transplant.
Shannon is looking for a BFF who could save her life- she needs a donor with an exact bone marrow match. A simple mouth swab test is all that is needed to determine if someone is a match. Learn more about how to become a bone marrow donor here.
Please spread the word… Shannon is looking for a BFF that can save her life!
