I joined Team Be The Match to raise critical funds for patients in need of a marrow transplant.
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. And the hardest matches to find are for minorities and mixed people, like my cousin Sean.
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!
Also, please consider joining the registry! It's even easier than when I signed up. Before they needed a blood sample. Now all it takes is a cheek swab! The main website for Be The Match has links to request a kit online and FAQ about what being a donor entails. And if you are already signed up, thank you! Please encourage your friends and family to join, especially if you are a minority or mixed. https://join.bethematch.org/headerjoin?_ga=2.150182006.1551997813.1503584816-1665384646.583481334
