My Coach Yury is currently a patient at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. His treatment for Lymphoma requires regular blood and platelet transfusions.
Yury and his family would deeply appreciate your donation of blood and/or platelets and hopes you will ask others you know to donate. Donations not used by Yury will be released for use by other patients many of whom are children.
Designated donations for Yury Gelman must be made in the Blood Donor Room of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
