"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.

Today’s post is a bit serious. On this day in 1945 Nagasaki was attacked by the world second atomic bombing. My image is a bomber dropping paper cranes, a symbol of world peace.
今日は長崎原爆の日。世界平和への祈りを込めて、爆弾じゃなく折り鶴を落とす爆撃機。ちょっと分かりにくい?

For those who are not frightened by the solitude, everything will have a different taste…

In solitude, they will learn that saying ‘No’ does not always show a lack of generosity and that saying ‘Yes’ is not always a virtue.

This is my friend, Emma Duffy. She’s an absolutely wonderful and inspirational person… she’s currently on a psychiatric unit, and is pretty much fighting for her life, the NHS is failing to provide her with the care her life depends on. They are currently discussing discharging her as they’ve deemed her “too complex”, this pretty much means they are sending her home to let her die. She’s not terminally ill, she may not have a physical illness, but Anorexia has the highest fatality rate of all mental illnesses. Emma has not eaten solids in a very long time, and relies on nutrition drinks to keep her alive. Words cannot describe how heartbreaking it is to see once such a healthy woman have her life slowly taken away by mental illness. the following text is from Emma’s younger sister, Amy. ”My sister, Emma Duffy has been refused funding for one of the only suitable mental health units in the country.She doesn’t meet the criteria for any NHS ward, even though the following has happened… *She has had an eating disorder for 15 years*Attempted suicide 9 times (once whilst on the ward she’s currently on)*Needed resuscitation *Needed blood transfusions*Been admitted to hospital for IV lines HUNDREDS of times*Thought her own family were trying to murder her*Not eaten since last May*Been sectioned numerous times, for months at a time.*The ward she is currently sectioned on is a short term stay ward (most stays last up to 21 days). She’s been there over 5 months as they don’t know where else to send her. As a family, we have been told to prepare for her death on more than one occasion. Her organs have been failing and most specialists and consultants say they have no idea how she is still alive.Even after all this, she does not meet the criteria for specialist help. Her case is either too complex for units to handle, or we cannot get the funding. Please help us raise money and awareness, to save Emma.”If it’s the last thing you do today, share this post, and if you can - PLEASE donate - even if it’s £1!DONATE HERE : http://www.gofundme.com/6osnlw FACEBOOK PAGE : www.facebook.com/savingemmaduffy

My sister, Emma Duffy has been refused funding for one of the only suitable mental health units in the country.
She doesn’t meet the criteria for any NHS ward, even though the following has happened… 
*She has had an eating disorder for 15 years
*Attempted suicide 9 times (once whilst on the ward she’s currently on)
*Needed resuscitation 
*Needed blood transfusions
*Been admitted to hospital for IV lines HUNDREDS of times
*Thought her own family were trying to murder her
*Not eaten since last May
*Been sectioned numerous times, for months at a time.
*The ward she is currently sectioned on is a short term stay ward (most stays last up to 21 days). She’s been there over 5 months as they don’t know where else to send her. 
As a family, we have been told to prepare for her death on more than one occasion. Her organs have been failing and most specialists and consultants say they have no idea how she is still alive.

Adam Cooper and  kinetic genius Sylvie Guillem in William Forsythe’s Herman Schmerman pas de deux, set to music by Thom Willems.

I believe this performance occurred at a gala celebrating Tchaikovsky at the Royal Opera House in around 1993, but I am not certain. I have also seen the title of the ballet spelled many different ways, even in official programmes: Hermann Schmermann, Herman Schmermann, Hermann Schmerman.

I love Guillem so much I can’t even… strong, charismatic, intelligent. She could have just rested on the fact she was born with the physique for ballet and not challenged herself, yet she has always chosen her own path on her own terms…

I love her, too. While I don’t love every video clip I have ever seen of her, I think she has received criticism that is completely without merit.
