Family and friends are hoping a bone marrow registry drive can help a young Trumbull woman and others find their “perfect match” July 2.
Shea Marazita, 23, was diagnosed April 23 with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, after her family says she didn’t feel quite like herself for a few weeks. She is undergoing chemotherapy and is in remission. However, she only has a 30% chance of staying in remission without a bone marrow transplant. So far, siblings and family members have not proved to be matches for the transplant. She is working with doctors to find a match and that’s where community support comes in.
