Faces of Leukemia - one stricken, one savior.

Paul and his donor Alke - two lives intersecting - one second life

I asked Alke if she would donate bone marrow again if she was asked, and she said "of course". Her boyfriend Benjamin told me he has also been tested for compatibility because "one day I may need a donor, everyone should be tested".

You can contact Hema-Quebec, or the Red Cross or blood authority in your country to be tested for compatibility - you may give a second life.

  1. Paul. Very interesting to meet that beautiful human being! Thank you for sharing. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and I can imagine how exciting it was to meet her. Prends soin de toi. Sylvie Robidoux qui a travaillé chez RBC de 1994 à 2004!
