timeneverlasts:

This is my friend Cristina Di Corte. She’s 22 years old and was recently diagnosed with a rare disease known as Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy (MNGIE). Only 70 people in the world have been reported to have this disease. It targets the organs in her body, mainly the digestive/nervous system. She currently can not eat any foods or liquids since her digestive system doesn’t work at all. At one time she weighed a low of 66lbs, but thanks to an IV, she gains her nutrients and calories each day. As each day goes by she hopes for a donor who can give her bone marrow. This is the only way the disease can be treated, by a bone marrow transplant. It won’t cure the disease, but it will allow her to live on for decades and give her the life she’s always dreamed of. My goal is to share her story with everyone that I can, and hopefully it could give people the determination to help her out and get tested to see if you’re a match for her. The test is so easy and painless, its all described in her documentary. Please take the time to watch the video, and please reblog this to everyone!!!!!! It could help save a life :) <3
