Antonio has been diagnosed with myeloma

Antonio is a husband, who loves to spend time with his family and friends. He enjoys sightseeing, sunbathing and picnics. Each year, he holds a Eurovision party and is a mastermind in the song contest. Antonio is also a chef and adores his mother's Italian cooking.

Unfortunately, Antonio was diagnosed with myeloma in January 2017. Although currently in remission, doctors expect that he will relapse by the end of this year.

Monika, his wife, said:

"He is very artistic and his talents range from flower arrangements to interior designing, and he even decorated our wedding venue. He has a great sense of humor and can disarm anyone with his smile". 

Antonio's best chance of survival is to find a blood stem cell donor. 

We are urging anyone aged 17-55 years old and in good health to register as a blood stem cell donor to give Antonio, or someone like him, a chance to continue hosting Eurovision parties and enjoying his mother's cooking.
