Kirk Gaskell - Young Father and Husband Needs Your Help!

Kirk Gaskell, lives with his wife Angela, 5 year-old daughter Madelyn, and 3 year-old son Michael in Peterborough. August of last year, Kirk began experiencing severe persistent headaches, then in November, the headaches were accompanied by extreme thirst and urination. Soon Kirk was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia or AML. In January,Kirk was told, a stem cell transplant will be his only chance of survival.

'I have learned many things in the last few months' writes Kirk,'but the most difficult and liberating was realizing that this js one thing I cannot control. Health and time are precious gifts.'

Almost 1,000 Canadians Need Your Help

Kirk, and more than 950 Canadians needs stem cells from an unrelated donor to survive. Fewer than 25% of Canadians find a match within their family.
