Diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 24, former marketing manager Pamela Bou Sejean, now 26, has undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatment to fight her disease but it has proven to be more resilient than anyone would prefer, and now the young woman requires a allogeneic stem cell transplantation.

Unfortunately, she has thus far failed to find a match, either within her family or in a worldwide search across bone marrow registries.

The problem in finding a match likely has much to do with her ethnic background: The Australian woman is of Lebanese decent.

So her brother decided to turn to social media and has launched a Facebook page to get the word out and encourage possible matches to undergo a blood test.
