Solange Raises Awareness for Blood Cancer [Video]
Solange wants you to help cure blood cancer. The singer lends her star power to a PSA for DKMS to find a donor match for 18-year-old Kara and others who are suffering from leukemia, the number one disease affecting children in the U.S. As a registered donor herself, she encourages people to register to become a bone marrow donor at GetSwabbed.org.
“Since attending the DKMS gala couple of years ago, I have wanted to lend my support in any way I could. People are dying and we can save them. Patients like Kara could be cured with a bone marrow transplant,” stated the 25-year-old mother. “A lot of people don’t understand that it’s literally a cotton swab that determines if you’re a match. This can actually save someone’s life!”
