Doc12fxPlease help Natalie Oana Russo find a donor. It takes 10 minutes or less to fill out a form and do a cotton swab in the cheek. This could give a second chance at life to someone like Natalie Oana Russo, a Kamehameha alumni class of 1977.  At KS she was an outstanding volleyball player and is currently active in the development of cultural based Native Hawaiian education. Recently she was diagnosed with leukemia and is in desperate need of finding a matching donor to help save her life. YOU can help her and other patients searching, by registering.  MAHALO!
