As a member of the Be The Match Gala Board of Ambassadors, I am honored to raise money for a cause that is not only extremely important to my family, but also one that I have been personally affected by. My cousin Alison was diagnosed with Leukemia at the young age of 6. While finding that her brother was a perfect match for her, she soon received her transplant. While she went on to live several months, she sadly passed away at the age of 7, just after my first birthday.
While my cousin was given additional time, so many patients who are in desperate need of a life-saving transplant are not afforded this option. We NEED to add more potential donors to the registry. We NEED to save more lives and keep families together.
Your gift can add new potential blood stem cell donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs, and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
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 single dollar counts.
