Hello family and friends: Many of you already know that in 2012 I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and a bone marrow transplant was my only chance of survival. After months of searching, both nationally and internationally, a perfect match was found via Be The Match, and a life-saving transplant was done in April of 2013. A beautiful young Belgian woman was the altruistic donor and there are never adequate words to thank her for her extraordinary gift.
I have decided to come out of retirement to run one final marathon to raise money for this wonderful organization - BE THE MATCH. The Virgin Money London Marathon is on April 28th 2019. I'll be at the start and plan to make it to the finish line.
Please help me raise as much money as possible by making a tax-deductible contribution before the end of April.
Your generous gift can:
- Help deliver cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life
- Add new potential blood stem cell donors to the registry
- Fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes
Please help me reach my fundraising goal. Every dollar counts....and every single cent goes to the fund.
* I will match every donation up to the goal amount of $5,000
THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. GILLIAN
Together, we can make a difference!
