Kim and Khloe Kardashian took to their blogs recently to ask their fans for help. After battling cancer for 17 years, their cousin Cici is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant, so Kim and Khloe are asking readers everywhere to help their family find her a donor. 

“This is difficult for me to write, but we really need your help,” wrote Kim, as she began to tell Cici’s story. “She’s been going through chemo for such a long time, but now the cancer is not responding to the chemo and she needs a bone marrow stem cell transplant. This necessary procedure would hopefully give our Cici many more years to live!”

Adding to the difficulty of a transplant is Cici’s Armenian heritage, which means that her donor must also be Armenian.  “We are asking every Armenian to reach out to the bone marrow registry and sign up with hopes of finding a match for Cici,” Khloe wrote. “Your help truly means the world to us!”

They are also working on getting a #HelpCici hashtag trending on Twitter, to spread the word as far and wide as they possibly can.

It’s lovely to see these ladies use their social media savvy for such an important cause. We wish the whole Kardashian family the best of luck, and we hope every Armenian out there is listening!
