Trevor’s doctor, Dr. Kent Jolly, said tonight he about a 5% chance for survival without a compatible bone marrow donor, and that most likely he only has 8 weeks to live without one.
Becoming a donor of the National Bone Marrow Registry is so simple… 4 swabs from the inside of your cheek. There are absolutely no needles involved.
Tissue typing of the samples usually takes 6-8 weeks, which is something that Trevor simply cannot spare. Expedited testing is being done for drives held in Trevor’s honor, but sadly even those take 4 weeks to analyze.
Trevor Kott is running out of time, and I need your help.
Go to the National Bone Marrow Registry site and search for a bone marrow drive in your area. If there isn’t a convenient location available you can request a test kit to be sent directly to your home by mail.
By becoming a donor you become part of the national registry. Even if you aren’t a match for Trevor, you could someday be a match for someone else. You could literally save someone’s life by making the decision to REACT to Trevor’s story.
The Kott family needs a miracle. Please seek out a way to become a donor this weekend.
Make up your mind right now to become a donor. Trevor doesn’t have time to wait…
