This is Adrian Haigh who works at Gentium.

Gentium is a pharmaceutical company in Italy that manufactures a drug called Defibrotide.
Defibrotide played a significant role in saving Jada's life.

Adrian ran a marathon on October 28, 2012 to raise money for the Jada Bascom Foundation.

The Jada Bascom Foundation celebrated the 5th Anniversary of
Jada's bone marrow transplant with a Bone Marrow Enrollment Tour.  We
were delighted to have Jada's donor, Torsten, and his wife, Michaela, join Jada and Jeana for the tour.  Magda Silva from Be The Match, the U.S. National Bone Marrow Registry, was also with us.  We held bone marrow donor drives across Montana, Idaho & Washington.and enrolled 233 potential new donors!

It only takes a cheek swab to find out if you are the match that can save a life, just like Torsten saved our Jada's life!

Go to, fill out the form.
The registry will mail your swab kit to you and it is free!
