Asti (Italy), Excuse me but I need to call your attention to an important thing in my lyfe at present.

This is an appeal arranged with the Italian Association of Donors’ Bone Marrow to find with the greatest urgency a compatible donor for Michela, my wife aged 35, who is suffering from Multiple Myeloma.

This is a malignant proliferation of plasma cells which are responsible for manufacturing immunoglobins as part of the function of the immune system.

A transplant of bone marrow can be used to offer hope to her or to other patients with the same illness or other similar illnesses (for example Leukaemia).

Why are transplants necessary ?

The word transplant suggests the image of a major organ transplant, but bone marrow transplants are very different.
Bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells are both removed by needle, and received intravenously.

The objective of a transplant is to restore the bone marrow’s ability to produce healthy blood cells " to carry oxygen, prevent bleeding and fight off infection.

Most people who’ve donated say it’s a humbling experience, to know you can help so easily.

It simply isn’t a huge operation.

For all the information you may need, please see the Anthony Nolan

Trust website:

This trust works to offer patients all around the world a better chance of a successful bone marrow transplant.
A gift of life.

Please send this message to all the people you know asking them to do the same.

More information, more donors...more hope to give life.

Thank you very much for your attention but especially for all the help you may provide in regard to this appeal !
