This month’s telephone educational and support program will highlight the story of a donor dad who stopped at nothing to save his daughter, Kenza, diagnosed with acute myloid leukemia (AML) at just nine months old. Dr. Omar Durani of Dallas, Texas will talk about Kenza’s life-saving clinical trial five years ago, his family today, the need to spread the word to create much needed awareness through DKMS, and his incredible haplo donor experience. Leah Szumita, MS, RN, CCRN, ACNS-BC, Director, Clinical Trial Support Center of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will join Dr. Durani and further emphasize the importance of clinical trials and how to better understand and navigate them. The nbmtLINK’s licensed staff social worker, Jennifer Gillette, will facilitate the program. There will also be plenty of time for live questions.

This FREE program is intended to provide psychosocial and emotional support along with health information from national experts regarding critical topics surrounding cancer and treatments. This program is recorded and available on our website one week after airing live.
