UVCC students to raise funds for sick child By Janae Jeremy NewsFeature editor Valentine's day and kisses seem to go together, and UVCC students will have a special opportunity to celebrate the lover's holiday by kissing somebody special while raising money for a very sick little girl. Cheerleaders, athletes and student government members will be manning a kissing booth in the concourse near the Student Government office on Valentine's day, and kisses will cost 500 each. ASUVCC is sponsoring the kissing booth to raise money for bone marrow testing for 21 -month-old Kirsten Doxey, who suffers from a disease known as CD-18 Receptor Defect. "The prognosis is luck," says Kirsten 's mother, Vicki Doxey of Springville. "If we do find a donor we have no idea what the long-range effect will be. We don't know what ef fect the antibiotics or infections will have on Kirsten." The blonde, brown-eyed toddler desperately needs a com-patable bone-marrow donor if she is to ha ve a chance at a normal life. One of the draw-backs is that, unlike about 30 percent of similar cases, there are no com-patable donors in her family. And Kirsten needs a compatible donor to save her life. Willing donors need only to take a simple blood test, but the testing of each donor costs $75. The fundraiser at UVCC is raising money to help offset the cost of the testing to those who volunteer. The plan is that a donor will pay $37.50 of the fee and the funds raised will match that amount.

"She was so sick the first two months, but the doctors couldn't find out what was wrong," explained her mother.

As a result, she has battled through pneumonia, large abscesses on her stomach and vaginal area, and a case of chicken pox which nearly proved fatal. After spending a month in the hospital with the chicken pox, she was so thin and week when she came home. Her muscle strength had deteriorated to the point that she had to begin crawling until her strength returned many weeks later Kirsten Doxey Continued on page 4 On Tuesday, February 6, the personnel from academic advisement will be counseling business students about what courses are needed to transfer into a 4-year degree.
