At the age of 6, Kalea was diagnosed with a very rare form of leukemia—a “mixed phenotype” of both AML and ALL. She spent 38 days in the hospital and has returned for chemotherapy. Her best chance for a cure is a blood stem cell transplant.
All of Kalea’s siblings volunteered to donate and were tested, but none were a genetic match.
Because Kalea is of mixed race, finding an unrelated donor is challenging.
We believe we can find a cure for Kalea. You could be that cure. Sign up for the registry today.
We’ll ask you a series of questions about your medical history to see if you meet basic qualifications.
We’ll need to get a sample of your DNA. Your kit should arrive in about 3-7 business days.
It’s easy – just swab your cheek and mail the DNA sample back to us to complete your registration.
Because of the genetic complexity of matching donors to patients, it could be weeks, months or years before you’re contacted to donate.
Be ready if you’re contacted as a match. If called, you’re a patient’s best genetic match from the entire registry and perhaps their only hope for a cure.
