Over the past 25 years, only 54 patients have been diagnosed worldwide with Plazmacytoid Dendretic Cells Leukemia. Peter Dagher is one of them unfortunately. He is in need of money to perform a bone marrow transplant but more importantly needs to find a match.
For this purpose, the Peter Dagher Foundation was set up not just to raise awareness and collect money but also and this is really important to create an extensive and accurate bone marrow registry for any person of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean ethnicity with the help of BE THE MATCH (National Bank for the bone marrow) and the American University of Beirut.
Let’s hope and pray that Peter wins his battle against cancer.
