Briana Lopez, a 12-year-old seventh grader, is battling an aggressive and rare form of leukemia. She has the adorable innocent smile of a child but the strength of someone far older. Briana desperately needs to find a life saving bone marrow match. A stranger contributing to the National Reg-istry could save her life. Join the Registry today! It only takes 5 minutes to fill out a form and swab your cheek. Being of Hispanic decent makes finding Briana’s life sav-ing match a lot harder because we do not have enough Latinos on the National Registry. By adding more people to the Registry that fall into the Latin demographic makes us that much closer to saving Briana’s life!
