Estella is a 34 year old dentist anesthesiologist from Sacramento with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She enjoys baking and baking and planning parties! Because tissue types are inherited, patients are most likely to match donors of the same ethnic background, which means Estella's match will have to come from another Korean. There are over 20 million registered donors in the US. Only 0.5% of those are Korean.
Although Estella received a transplant from her older brother, who was a partial match, she relapsed seven months later. Estella still has no current matches on the Be the Match registry, and has continued her search in the hopes of finding her match.
For now, she is undergoing CarT therapy and hoping to see some good results.
Please consider joining the registry today! You could could be the one to help Estella!
