Make It Happen 4 BMD


The “Make It Happen” fund was started by Sherri and Jeff Kitzberger in honor of their daughter Annalyse, who was only 5 when diagnosed with 2 life-threatening Bone Marrow Diseases (BMD); Aplastic Anemia and Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH). Aplastic Anemia is a non-contagious disease that occurs when the bone marrow stops making the amount of cells the body needs: red cells (contain hemoglobin and deliver oxygen to all parts of the body); white cells (help fight infections); and platelets (help the blood clot when we bleed). In PNH many of the stem cells that remain are defective. Both are curable only by a Bone Marrow transplant from someone that is a “match” for you. Our goal for the “Make It Happen” fund is to continue to raise awareness and funds directed solely towards research for BMD at The Cleveland Clinic, under Dr. Jaroslaw Maciejewski, a leading expert on BMD in the world! Our focus is to help develop better treatment options and ultimately, to find a cure!
