Veteran Suicide Daily: Twenty-Two Too Many

Our veterans are in trouble– a lot of trouble. The veteran suicide rate is at an all-time high. According to K9s for Warriors, a veteran commits suicide almost every hour each day.

Bone Marrow Donation In High Demand: The Eliana Rose Story

Meet Eliana Rose Istre– the daughter of Melissa and USMC Gunnery Sgt Istre. Eliana was diagnosed with a rare form of Severe Congenital Neutropenia called Kostmann’s Syndrome, which directly hinders the production of neutrophils in bone marrow. Neutrophils are the tiny white blood cells that form an essential part of the immune system to fight infection and disease. Without these cells, Eliana fights on a daily basis to stay alive. Any illness she comes in contact with, quickly escalates into an emergency room visit. The only cure is to find a proper match through bone marrow donation. Despite this struggle, little Eliana fights the discomforts of this syndrome with a smile on her face.
