Greetings! I'm Heather. My "special occasion" is one of creativity and encouraging others. I'm participating in National Novel Writing Month. The 15th is the half way point of my endeavor to write a novel in the month of November, and I want to be doing more than just writing a novel and encouraing other writers. I also want to help save lives, if I can. I signed up for the marrow registry through Be The Match a few years ago, shortly after a friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer. I continue to remain on the registry in hopes that I can help someone else. Even if you can't afford a monetary donation (I normally can't), please consider joining the marrow registry. Thank you!
I joined Team Be The Match to raise money for my special occasion (NaNo) because I'm passionate about saving lives!
Your gift can add new potential marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
Did you know?
A marrow transplant can be a life-saving treatment for more than 70 diseases including leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell. Seventy percent of patients do not have a matching donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match to find an unrelated marrow donor and receive the transplant they need.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. Every dollar counts. Together, we can make a difference!
