My Family Needs Your Help

Khloe Kardashian and Kim Kardashian with their cousin, Cici Bussey
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 chemotheraphy drugs. Her best option now is a bone marrow stem cell transplant, which would hopefully give her many more years to live.

Because Cici is Armenian, 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!

Click here for more information and to register to become a donor. Please help us find a donor for Cici and keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

    Khloe, I read about your cousin CiCi heartbreaking story on Kim’s blog earlier today. I am praying that she finds a match for the bone marrow stem cell transplant. I know with all the prayers going up for her, God will answer. I have also gone to the link and read up on the information and registered to become a donor. PRAYING FOR YOU CICI!!!!!! xo

    Not sure if you actually read these but My nephew Landen went through Stem Cell and it actually caused his cancer to come back 10 times works and shortened his life. He only lived a year after the Transplant. I would definitely look into it.

    That’s so sad. :( I hope she finds a donor soon!! Just a question- why does the donor have to be of Armenian descent? Is it a preference or a requirement? (I’m not trying to be ignorant, I’m really curious.) I’ll keep her in my prayers!! xo

    Ive lost 2 friends and an Aunt to cancer.One of my friends Rawan to bone marrow cancer to be precise..I would have done anything to help all of them and I know how you feel.Therefore,I will do it in my friend Rawans memory,if I am a match.Im of Middle Easten decent.So if this works for you and the family let me know.I know you had said you guys prefer Armenian but when it comes down to it im sure youd rather have a bone marrow of any decent match.
    Praying for Cici best of luck .

    Khloe- I am so sorry to hear about your cousin. I hope they find a donor for her real soon. I know what she and your family are going through. I am 36 and I had two kidney transplants in my life time. One when I was eight and the other was in 2000. My thoughts and prayers are with her and your family in this difficult time. I will be praying that they find a donor soon. Take care!! :)
