URGENT! Houston baby with cancer needs bone marrow, family encourages minorities to donate

Little Arham is only 6 months old, but this baby boy with a beautiful smile that melts hearts is battling cancer.  He needs a stem cell match to survive.


His mother, Asma Abassi, said Arham was born happy and healthy, but became sick and was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia when he was only 3 months old.  Doctors found over a million cancer cells in Arham’s tiny body.

Arham has already had two rounds of chemo, but he needs new bone marrow, but there is one problem…tiny Arham is Asian and it is really hard to find a match… there is not enough Asian marrow in the registry.

If you are interested in being evaluated as a potential donor for Arham, please visit and register.
