Mike Bellobuono benefited, supported, and inspired many people in his life--both through his work as a lawyer in Hartford, Connecticut, where his primary concern was always the well-being of his clients, and through his friendships and his generous and devoted attention to every member of his large extended family. He faced his illness with hope, faith, and great strength. With gratitude to his caring nurses at Hartford Hospital--most especially to Susan Smith, who became a close and trusted companion on his difficult journey--we ask others to make memorial donations to Be the Match so that Mike may continue his legacy of offering hope and help to every person in need.
You have the power to heal
When you make a contribution to Be The Match Foundation, you save lives and help patients afford a transplant, find a matching donor and build a future as we advance medical research.
Since 2012 we have raised over $4,000 in Michael's memory and given many patients a second chance at life. Please make a memorial contribution today. Your gift will save lives.
Every year thousands of patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening illnesses need a marrow transplant but have no donor match in their family. They depend on Be The Match to help them find an unrelated donor and receive a transplant.
