Hey guys. I’m Gian and I’m in a bit of a frumpy spot.
So I have Ph+ ALL, a leukaemia that is currently kicking my arse to Mars and back. I recently just got diagnosed for the second time and it’s been incredibly resistant to everything they’ve been throwing at it.
Normally I’m a suffer-in-silence type, and I choose to give the illusion that I’m fine all the time, but I’m really not at the moment. I hate asking for help, and I hate asking for favours.
But I’m going to ask now. I need a bone marrow transplant or I’ll be dead. Not metaphorically, but actually dead. A very permanent situation. The problem is that they can’t find a match for me. And without it, the best I can look forward to is two months, but likely a month.
I’m pretty lucid right now, but I’m asking on behalf of my brothers and sister, of my husband, of my two children, and for myself for everyone to help this grumpy homosexualist from Oxfordshire out by getting on the bone marrow donor registry. Not only could you save my life, but countless other people around the world with similar sicknesses or diseases that desperately need your help.
Please. If it’s not too much to ask, register. Reblog this. Send it to friends. I don’t care how you spread the word, but please. For my sake. For other people’s sake. I would greatly appreciate if you took a few moments of your time to signal boost this or, better yet, register. I would quite like to spend a few more years with my husband, with my kids, with my family. I’m just a slightly crazed guy from England living in the States that really needs all the help he can get.
Besides, my birthday is in less than a month. I’d like to get one year older and finding a donor that could get me there. It would be the best birthday present a guy could ask for.
Thank you for reading this. I love all of you and I hope to be around to fanboy with you all for years to come.
