The following information was brought to my attention by my good friend (and Defense Czar of Provocation) Robert Fickman regarding the family of an Assistant District Attorney who needs some help from our CJC family. Robb writes:
Josh Reiss is a young Assistant District Attorney. He is married and has two small children.
Sadly his wife Ahn has a blood disease (MDS) which will require a stem cell transplant in order to save her life.
A blood drive in search of a suitable donor is ongoing.
The drive will be at the Courthouse, (on the 2nd floor) on Friday the 26, from 11 until 2pm.
Members of the DA's office, court staff and defense lawyers will all giving blood to try to find a suitable donor. Please come by. You may save a life.
This young lawyer and his family need all of us to kick in and do what we can. The odds are greater that a suitable match will be found in the Vietnamese-American or the Asian-American Community. So if you know anyone from the community please encourage them to participate. No matter what you have planned,
I am sure we can all agree that there is nothing more important than trying to help save a young mother's life.
As an added bonus, Brother Fickman has sworn that he will shave his hair into a Mohawk if he gets 300 Defense Attorneys to participate.
