View Full Version : #hopeforcristina

So, there's this woman that used to go to my school, and she has a gastrointestinal disease so rare only 70 people in the world have been diagnosed with. She needs a bone marrow transplant to save her, however, she has yet to find a match. Her family has turned to social media to raise awareness in an effort to find a donor.

So, what I'm asking is that, if any of you have twitter, could you tweet #hopeforchristina and #hopeforcristina. (She spells her name without an "h", but many people mispell it in the hashtag. If we can get either of those trending it'd make a difference). If we raise awareness, she could potentially find a match. Which would extend her life by decades.

I've got a Twitter account, I'll tweet it too, even though I don't see it trending at this moment in time.

EDIT: I tweeted it like 10 times.
