Dearest Friends & Family,
I have joined Team Be The Match to help raise awareness to a cause and an organization very dear to my heart.
Unfortunately, most of us don't think about signing up for these types of things until someone we love is diagnosed with a life threatening health issue and needs a critical donation, like a donor for a Bone Marrow Transplant. That is exactly why I am encouraging you to pause for a moment now, and please consider this for yourself. You never really know when your world will be spun into a health hurricane or when someone close to you will be spinning amongst all of these surreal situations. Please do the research (I promise you it's not as complex as you might think) and if able, please become a registered Bone Marrow Donor with Be The Match, like I did! There are so many desperately waiting for their angel on earth, their perfect match, to be discovered! It could be YOU!
You have the ability to save lives...give second chances, offer hope and answer prayers!

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.
Some of you may be unable to become registered donors for health or age related circumstances. Maybe you still feel compelled to help monetarily, which is also a blessing in so many ways. You may do so 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!
Love & Health,
