Earlier this year, we came together as a community United in Faith, Love and Action – working against the clock to find a matching bone marrow donor for Jelena Stojakovic.

I regret to inform you that despite your generous willingness to help, and our combined efforts to save her life, Jelena fell asleep in the Lord at a Seattle cancer treatment center on Tuesday, November 15. She was 32 years old. She was devoted to the Lord in faith and to improving the condition of her fellow man as shown through her years of service at International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC).
