Praying For Jasmina!

Jasmina Anema turns 6 today, but is in the fight of her life suffering from a very rare form of leukemia that is spreading too fast for the chemotherapy to fight it. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, and Paul Pierce have reached out on Jasmina's behalf in an effort to spread the word that she's in need of a bone marrow transplant. Jasmina is adopted, and complicating the donor search is that African American are underrepresented and our DNA is more varied. Jamina's mother indicates that at this point it's "a one in a million shot."

Here's sending out prayers to Jasmina Anema. Thanks to the New York Daily News for bringing further awareness to this heartwarming story.
