Blood marrow drives have been  scheduled across the state of California to help save one of our sorors, Carol Martin-Hicks’, life. Soror Martin-Hicks is already a two-time breast cancer survivor, but has now discovered that she has leukemia. Her only chance of survival now rests in a bone-marrow transplant.

Sorority members from across the state of California are rallying to help find a donor match for Soror Martin-Hicks.

“She’s just amazing,” said in a media interview. Soror Dr. Darlene V. Willis, President of the Epsilon Xi Omega Chapter of  Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. “We have to make this a priority because this is a life. There’s nothing more valuable than life.”

African Americans are reported to make up only 7 percent of the 10 million registered donors.

Spreading to other California cities and other states where this might be happening will help encourage NEW donors and will help to save our SORORS’ LIFE!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family!
