Alumni Jamie Ficko and 'Hockey Gives Blood' Raising Awareness for Stem Cell Donation.
Jamie is now in the Saskatoon Royal University Hospital preparing to undergo a new chemotherapy mix aimed to drive the cancer into remission and enable him to undergo a stem cell infusion. Jamie’s parents have been selected as his nearest match, at 50%, and will be the donors for this infusion. Jamie has been told finding a 100% match will be difficult given his rare stem cell type.
All of Jamie’s family and friends are working hard to raise awareness of the importance of becoming a stem cell donor in support of Jamie and all those who find themselves undergoing these same battles of trying to find a perfect match.
On behalf of Jamie, his immediate and extended family, and all his many friends – we sincerely thank Hockey Gives Blood for raising awareness for Jamie, his wife Cyndi and their three children.
