Hi Friends,


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.
