500,000 Donors Added / 1000 Patients Matched / $400K in Critical Funds Supplied - All Based on the Wish of a Dying 13-year-old Brazillian Girl
Online PR News – 06-November-2021 – New York, NY – The Icla da Silva Foundation was established in 1992, in memory of a 13-year-old Brazilian girl named Icla da Silva. After two years fighting leukemia, Icla passed in New York City where she came hoping to receive her life-saving treatment: a bone marrow transplant.
A matching donor was never found and the Icla da Silva Foundation was established to honor her wish: "Mom, I'm fine, don't worry about me; please help my friends" - Icla da Silva
