Help Erica Find a Bone Marrow Match

July 16, 2012

Harley Harris, a partner with our valued client Owen Bird, needs our help: his wife Erica was recently diagnosed with acute mylogenous leukemia, an acute form of blood cancer, and she urgently needs a bone marrow transplant. At present, a match has not been found through her family members or in the international bone marrow registries. Harley is hoping that anyone who hears about Erica’s battle will consider being tested to see if they’re a match, and to encourage others who are willing to be tested, as well.

So on behalf of Harley and Erica and their two young sons, we want to help spread the word throughout the BC legal industry and beyond – please consider being tested for suitability for bone marrow donation. Testing is done through Canadian Blood Services’ OneMatch and as Harley notes “Time is of the essence.”

Blood and platelet donors are also encouraged to donate – as Harley says, “You never realize how important donating blood and platelets really is until you are receiving them.”

Our thoughts are with the Harris family.¬†We’re cheering for you!
