My friends and family,
I am a member of Be The Match since the time somebody whom I never met personally, but wanted a Marrow Transplant desperately to save his life. Unfortunately, he didn't survive because he did not find the right match.
I joined Team Be The Match to raise money for my athletic event, NOT TO SPONSOR IT, BUT TO COMMEMORATE IT, because I’m passionate about saving lives and making a small impact in whichever way I can.
I am running Seattle Half Marathon this year (2016) primarily to raise funds and make my existence worthwhile. I am reaching out only to the members of my friend circle and family, whom I trust to understand the need to 'Give to save lives' at this juncture in our 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!
