Marcus was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in 2011 and after 2 years of fighting the disease with different therapies, it was decided that he would need a bone marrow transplant. Marc didn't have a match in registry which was devastating news to hear but he was blessed to receive a life saving Cord Blood Transplant early in 2013 and to have 3 more years of life in remission from cancer. Adding potential donors to the registry was something that Marc was passionate about. He didn't want any other families to have to go through what he went through in not having a match in the registry. He wanted to do everything he could to help others have a second chance at life. Please consider making a donation in memorial to him and to this cause that he was so passionate about.
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.
