e news aou er augers searc or a marrow onor. an ongs soryabout Sherrie Cramer’s trip to has reached media outlets nation and world wide,AMAZING! Here is a list, but there is several more:
Project Michelle was started by Michelle Maykin who wasdiagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia when she wasonly 25 years old. Michelle fought to protect those whowished to donate life-saving bone marrow and organs.Unfortunately, Michelle passed away last year, 2 yearsafter she was diagnosed, after struggling unsuccessfullyto find a bone marrow match. Now her mother, MeganWilliams is continuing this cause for her. Right now, withthe lack of protection, people who donate bone marrowand organs DO NOT receive paid leave from work, andthis life-saving action can ultimately lead to terminationof employment. If SB1304 passes, people who donatebone marrow will receive 5 days paid leave, and thosewho donate an organ will receive 30 days paid leavefrom work.Petition for SB1304.
Michelle Maykin passed away inJuly 2009. Her legacy continues tohelp make a difference in another person’s life.
