Mission Statement

The mission of the Icla da Silva Foundation is to save lives by recruiting bone marrow donors and by providing support services to children and adults with leukemia and other diseases treatable by marrow transplants.

Description

The Icla da Silva Foundation was established in June of 1992, as a nonprofit organization under section 501(c) 3 of the IRS Code.

The organization honors the life of a thirteen-year-old Brazilian girl who passed away after bravely fighting leukemia and despite all her family, friends and neighbors efforts in finding her a matching donor.

Icla's last wishes, enthusiasm and everlasting hope deeply inspire the Icla da Silva Foundation's programs and activities. In the last 20 years the Foundation has grown to become one of the largest recruitment organization for the National Marrow Donor Program
