Join Canada's national stem cell registry in honour of five year old Hillary McKibbin.

This is Hilary. She has big dreams of being a rockstar. She is always singing. She has been diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, an extremely rare and fatal disease, if left untreated. She is truly one in a million. Her family is searching for a bone marrow donor for a life-saving transplant. With the swab of a cheek, you can find out if you're a match for Hillary, or for one of 800 other patients in Canada currently waiting for a match.

Younger, male donors provide the best patient outcomes, but females can donate, too. Help increase awareness for the need for ethnically diverse males between 17-35 years old to join the global registry. If you're a match, the procedure is safe with no lasting effects.

It's time to give everyone an equal chance at life. Let's #StartWithHillary.

Join us in honour of Hillary's 6th birthday. Give her the gift of life.
