I am not identified by my cancer.

I am not just another patient.

I am a soldier.

I am a survivor.

I am a human.
My name is Parvaneh and I am a proud member of PACI. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2007 and quickly felt like my world was falling apart. 

On July 17th, 2010 I took a trip to the emergency room, thinking I only had a bad case of flu. Shortly after arrival I was informed of the presence of a large mass in my chest. Upon further tests and examinations doctors diagnosed me with stage 4 Lymphoma.
Hi, I am Setareh, 28 yrs old, a dentist in my 2nd yr of Maxillofacial residency. I have been diagnosed with an aggressive form of Acute Leukemia (AML) and I'm being treated at MD Anderson cancer center.
With the help and support of so many great human beings such as you, Tymaz found an unrelated bone marrow donor and went through transplant on Dec 16th.
Alireza has been diagnosed with Blood cancer. Please help him!
Please consider registering as a bone marrow donor. Our toddler w/ Giant Cell Hepatitis And Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia may need a bone marrow transplant.

Its so easy to register... even Mansour can do it in just 4 steps:
