Kourtney Kardashian needs your help.

As her sister Khloé has done as well, the Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star is calling on fans for support in the wake of one family member's ailing health.

"My cousin Cici recently found out that after 17 years of battling cancer, her body has stopped responding to the chemotherapy and she desperately needs a bone marrow stem cell transplant," Kardashian posted last night on her official blog.

"Because Cici is of Armenian descent she needs to receive bone marrow from an Armenian donor, which means the pool of options is a lot smaller and she's having a difficult time finding a match," the 33-year-old mother of two continued. "We are asking that any of you who are Armenian, have Armenian friends or extended family members consider signing up as a donor at the bone marrow registry, in hopes that we can find a match for Cici and give our beloved cousin many more years to live."

Kardashian explains that the procedure to donate marrow is quick and nonsurgical and is similar to giving blood.

"Because Cici is 100% Armenian the need for an Armenian donor is the most important," Kourt wrote. "She has aligned herself with the Armenian bone marrow donor bank and you can get more info here: www.abmdr.am."
