This year, Paul and I have decided to honor Gregory's memory by raising funds for Be The Match organization, a national Marrow Donor Program. Between now and June 20th, Gregory's 2nd Heavenly Birthday, we would like to raise $500 for this worthy cause.
Our friend Donna Bova recently underwent a bone marrow transplant after a donor was found via Be The Match. Another friend, Tana Loring, beat her 2nd battle with cancer a few years ago with a bone marrow transplant after locating a donor via Be The Match. We raise these funds in their honor, as well, in hopes of reaching more people and increasing the donor base and funding for this amazing organization.
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 us reach our fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. Every dollar counts. And, please register with Be The Match. It is a very easy process and could mean the difference betwen life and death for another person.
Together, we can make a difference!
