Sixteen year old Anais Alleman was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and AML. Friends of her family have reached out to Ellen Degeneres' to help spread the word about the need for a bone marrow donor. You can help, too, simply by sharing her story.

From Facebook via Dana Griffin Nugent:

Ellen, this is the Alleman family from Rayne, Louisiana. The two young girls are my former students at Rayne Catholic Elementary, Chloe and Anais. Both were adopted from Vietnam and are fun loving, smart, kind, and just beautiful girls. Anais, pictured on the right recently turned 16. She was also recently diagnosed with Leukemia and AML. Because of her ethnicity, finding a bone marrow donor will be extremely difficult. We are desperately trying to reach out to those of Asian descent to please register at the bone marrow registry so that this family may find that one special person that could possibly save Anais. This hard working family needs support in every way and our school and community is desperate to find her as much help as possible. Please help us by telling the world how important bone marrow donation is, especially for those of different ethnicities. Please help us show this family love and support. thank you.
