An Important Message From Jordin Tootoo

Jordan Tootoo is asking the indigenous community to join Canadian Blood Services stem cell registry.

Alexa is an honour roll student and member of the U18 AAA Notre Dame Hounds. In 2023, Alexa was diagnosed with a rare bone marrow condition (Primary Myleofibrosis) and now needs a stem cell transplant. This weekend in Saskatoon a stem cell recruitment event will be hosted in her honour at the Fred Saskamoose Chief Thunderstick Tournament on May 18,19 from 11am-7pm. 

The event will take place in the lobby of MerIis Belsher Place arena in Saskatoon. 

With 2400 athletes participating at the tournament the goal is 1000 swabs. Alexa has an indigenous background so it imperative that those between the ages of 17-35 with an indigenous background register. 

If you can’t make the event please consider registering online at blood.ca/HGB. Must be between the ages of 17-35 to join.
