My name is Ken Raimondi and I'm a filmmaker and bone marrow transplant survivor. In September 2011, I was diagnosed with a rare disease called Aplastic Anemia (bone marrow failure). After my initial treatment for the disease failed, I had the option to pursue a bone marrow transplant and a chance at a cure. I didn't have any relatives that matched and the only reason I am here today is because a stranger took the time to join the national bone marrow registry and answered the call to give when he was asked. He is no longer a stranger…but a friend. I thank God for Cameron Walker's gift!
Now I feel a renewed purpose in my life. As an independent filmmaker, I want to tell a complete story of a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor and patient's perspective. The only way I can do this is with your support. I tried to tell the story of Sara Scotti but sadly the hospital did not grant me access. I have another survivor who wants her story told and we are about to approach the PR staff with our request.
I would like to show the support that is already out there for this type of story. I don't have the backing of a studio or a major TV network…but if I could get your backing and that of your friends, maybe we can show that their is an audience for this story.
Please sign the petition and share it in your networks. You could be the difference in getting this film made. You could be part of helping to educate and motivate others to become life-saving donors.
Thank you for your time,
Story. Told. Productions
