Hi my name is Thor and I am six years old. I must say I am loving life. I like to fish, play T-ball and sing in the choir amongst other things. Many people say I am a handsome little guy and I'm sure you could agree but, what you don't see is that I suffer in silence.
I was born with sickle cell anemia which is a blood disease. All my life I have been in and out of the hospital and I have had over 25 blood transfusions. I currently have iron overload from all the transfusions. One may ask, why I have to have monthly blood transfusions. I tell people I am one of many people with sickle cell, patients that are at a high risk of having a silent stroke. Ok, I know what you're thinking poor baby. Well, you know, I thank God in advance every day for healing me, I am truly blessed.
Now that you know a little about me, this is what I am asking of you. Please, support any marrow registry drives, runs, or other functions. If you are in good general health, join the Be the Match Registry today. Do it for all the patients in need of a bone marrow transplant that have been waiting for years for that perfect match.

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!
