We are coming back to Hamilton Park in San Francisco for another BeTheMatch.org drive for Eriana. Come visit us!

Hi friends and family, and welcome visitors. šŸ™‚

We know it has been a while! So here is an update: Eriana is now 4 years old. šŸ™‚ We’ve reached out and have had many registrants, and have had some potential matches, but no luck yet. šŸ™


Eriana still desperately needs a bone marrow transplant and she isĀ looking for a bone marrow donor!Ā 


That’s why we are grateful BeTheMatch.org along with Hamilton Recreation Center are helping with another bone marrow drive. Join us:

This is Eriana :)

This is Eriana. She is 3 years old. Isn’t she adorable?

Behind that innocent and pretty smile, Eriana has Sickle Cell Disease.

Sickel cell isĀ a genetically inherited blood disorder. ItĀ is named for the shape of the red blood cells, where theĀ red blood cells tend to collapse and become sticky preventing movement of blood and oxygen to the tissue. In Eriana, itĀ causes severe pain and can damage affected areas. It is a lifelong condition she has to live with.

But a procedure known asĀ a Bone Marrow transplant can fix it. Imagine, she will not have to live in pain and can live a normal life!

Eriana, her family and friends and generous and helpful organizations and groups, are ready to help her.

Please join us.

Thank you
