Pierce: Two matches for Jasmina

Earlier this year Paul Pierce [1] joined the fight to find a life-saving bone marrow donor for Jasmina Anema, a six-year-old leukemia patient. Since Anema is adopted,¬† finding a donor match to combat the rare and deadly form of the disease was difficult. Pierce¬†campaigned for blood drives in the Boston area and pleaded for help on his website, PaulPierce.net. Other athletes and celebrities, including Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, and New York Knick Chris Wilcox [2], also reached out to help. Nearly five months after she was hospitalized, two near-perfect matches have been found for Jasmina [3]. Click here [4] to read a message on Pierce’s site.
