My name is Joe Tocco and I am 25 years old, i have been healthy my whole life. Last February i woke up with blood blisters in my mouth and a Petechiae rash all over my whole body. I was diagnosed with a rare disease called Severe Aplastic Anemia a rare blood disease, which means you have no immune system, your bodys cells attack your bone marrow killing it, you have no white or red blood cells and you do not create blood platelets which make your blood clot, and white cells are to keep infection away and you have no energy & low oxygen when your red cells are low. My sister Brittany was a perfect match for me to receive her bone marrow. I received her bone marrow and i grafted 100% and was doing well, then my new bone marrow starting to slip so i was scheduled to get a boost of my sisters stem cells this time to get me to graft me back to 100% but in 2 weeks time my new immune system failed and i now need another bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor. We have another perfect match but that person will not respond to any phone calls, so we are now doing a bone marrow donor registry to find another match, please go to bethematch.com and register, it is only a mouth swab, it could save some ones life, but please do not get on the regisrty if you think at some time you might change your mind. Joe is currently in the hospital with a blood infection and 102.8 fever as his body cannot fight infection so we need lots of prayers and support as his life is in jeopardy. Joe also has a family, his wife Maggie, Lailah 6 and Stella 12 weeks that they have to support. Joe has not worked since March1, 2013 and cannot go back to work until 6 months after the new bone marrow transplant. Thanks for any help you can give
