Khloe Kardashian has NO QUALMS asking for help and using her online power to find it — and we LOVE that she's willing to do that!
Unfortunately, it's not a happy situation: her cousin Cici is currently battling cancer, and needs a bone marrow transplant. So she has asked her fans and followers for help in finding Cici a donor!
Here's what she wrote:
“I am writing this blog post because my family desperately needs your help. My cousin, Cici, has been battling cancer for 17 years and she is no longer responding to the chemotherapy drugs. Her best option now is a bone marrow stem cell transplant, which would hopefully give her many more years to live.”
Specifically, she goes on to ask her Armenian fans to get tested to see if they could be a possible a match:
“The donor must be of Armenian descent, so we are asking every Armenian to reach out to the bone marrow registry and sign up with hopes of finding a match for Cici. Your help truly means the world to us.”
There's no word on how many people have done so, but we're willing to bet it's been more than one!
Khloe — we're so sorry to hear about your cousin! We'll be keeping her in our thoughts!
