Gabrielle Mongillo is only 1 and ½ years old. In her young life all she has known is the love of the parents who adopted her and the pain of the leukemia she’s had since birth.

Gabby was born with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and is in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant to survive, but since she was adopted from Yemen, she has no matches within her family.

Luckily for Gabby fellow community member Matthew McGuire, whose son Liam has had his battle
with leukemia, has decided to do what he can to help find her life-saving match.

A bone marrow drive will be held in hopes of finding a match for Gabby and others like her. Getting swabbed takes 5 minutes, but it could mean a lifetime for someone like Gabby. Could you be her match?
