This is Cristina DiCorte's Bone Marrow Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for Cristina's medical costs, medicines and related expenses

Friends -

My niece and god-daughter, Cristina DiCorte, has recently been diagnosed with MNGIEs disease. She is one of only 70 people in the world diagnosed with this rare genetic disease. MNGIEs disease hits the digestive and nervous system. The muscles and nerves that move food and waste through the digestive system are hit, so anything eaten just rots the body. That results in dangerous weight loss, trouble swallowing, vomitting, pain, intestinal blockage and nausea.

If we can't find a bone marrow match, her life is on the line. We have been asking friends and family to register as potential donors (; but, the odds of finding a match outside the family are approximately 30,000 : 1.

Cristina is a courageous, vibrate and beautiful young woman and deserves an opportunity to live her life to the fullest. We are trying to help her in any way possible with support and compassion as well as assistance with the cost of medication and medical expenses.

Any assistance you can provide would be dearly appreciated.

Tony and Enza Cina
Hope for Cristina
