Caroline Ciavaldini, born in Toulouse in 1985 and lived in La Réunion until 16, is one of the strongest french climbers. he won 4 times the french lead chasmpionship, but most important since may 2012 she’s a potential bone marrow donor!

Last year Pietro told me about climb for life, I think it was in a la sportiva party. Getting a blood test to enter the donation registers, I thought I had to do it, really. One of my good climbing friend has a leucimia, it’s making her life turn into hell, I feel so sad every time I think about her, she is such a nice girl, it’s just so unfair that this happen to her. I thought the least I could to was to go to the hospital and give a bit of blood. But I didn’t do it, didn’t take the time for it.

But I saw Pietro again, I really thought I couldn’t allow myself to be so lasy, it felt like spitting at the face of those people who wait for a donor. So finally, I did it. And guess what? All it took was to spit in a little tube, not even any injection. And I know that now, maybe, I can help a little bit.

The chance to be a donor once you’re registered is 1 on 2000. Nothing. So now, I have to convince 2000 other people to spit in a tube, and together we will have saved one person. So, please, if you are reading this, don’t be as lazy as I was, take one hour to go to a hospital!
