According to the Facebook event page,

Adam Zibura of Windsor, Maine was diagnosed with Leukemia in September 2021. His Leukemia diagnosis came as a result of having Bloom Disease which is a rare genetic disorder that he was diagnosed with at the age of seven. Sadly, more than 50% of patients with Bloom Disease are diagnosed with a type of cancer, commonly Leukemia. In order to have a chance at life without cancer, he requires a 100% match for a bone marrow transplant.
Typically, Leukemia patients are able to receive bone marrow transplants from somebody that is not a 100% match but due to Adam’s Bloom Disease, he needs a match that is significantly harder to find. Leukemia patients have a 30% chance of finding a bone marrow donor within their families, while 70% of patients pray that they match with a compatible stranger, which is where we are looking now.
 
Adam is home for the foreseeable future, unable to work at his beloved job at the Augusta Regional Communications Center- 911 Emergency Dispatch. He has been blessed so far to receive sick time donations from his co-workers but will soon run out and will require assistance in paying every day bills with a mountain of medical debt on top.
 
Our mission for this event is to raise funds to cover some of Adam's expenses, both living and medical. Furthermore, we are kindly asking that you would consider getting tested to see if you could be Adam's match! You can sign up for your free swab kit at www.BeTheMatch.org or you can get swabbed at this event as well!
 
Adam has served our communities as part of the Volunteer Windsor Fire Department and also answering our 911 calls for the greater part of the last 15 years. Please join us in coming together to serve him now!
Join us for dinner and live auction on January 15th, 2022 at Le Club Calumet.
Social Hour- 5:00pm
Dinner- 6:00pm
