The Kardashian sisters are promoting a drive organized by the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry, which is scheduled to take place Tuesday, February 26 from 4 to 8 p.m at the Glendale Memorial Hospital Auditorium, 1420 Central Ave.
An appeal from Kourtney Kardashian on behalf of her cousin CiCi, who needs a bone marrow donor after her body stopped responding to chemotherapy, is at the center of this alliance between the celebrity sisters and ABMDR.
The organizations director, Dr. Frieda Jordan, hopes that the Kardashians involvement would attract new donors.
“The buzz is there, I think the Kardashians are tweeting it for the whole week,” Jordan told the Glendale News Press. “We hope there will be hundreds [of registrants].”
Another drive is scheduled for Sunday at the Las Vegas Armenian Apostolic Church.
