I joined Team Be The Match to raise money because I’m passionate about saving lives!
For those of you who do not know me, in February of 2016 I donated my marrow via PBSC donation and it has been by far the most rewarding thing that I have ever done. Throughout my life I have put in hundreds and hundreds of hours of volunteering and nothing even comes close to the satisfaction I got from my donation.
Each time a new person joins the registry and provides DNA (cheek swab) it costs Be The Match (not the newly registered person) about $100 to run and register that DNA into their database. Not only will your donation go towards running swabs, but to many other aspects as well.
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!
