Our ‘72 has been in our family since ‘74. Pierce and his sisters, Sierra (4) and Harper (7mo) were taken to the hospital to be delivered in this Bronco. It is a five speed manual with no power steering or brakes.
1st Annual Bronco Convoy for BeTheMatch
Join us, as we celebrate taking Fierce Pierce home! Pierce Kelly (2) was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on April 7th at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). His treatment included 115 days in-patient, going under 14 times, 2 rounds of chemo, and a bone marrow transplant. His match (someone with a similar immune system) is from France. His blood type changed to match that of his donor. Pierce was discharged cancer-free on August 29th, but was unable to go home; he needed to remain within a 30min radius of the hospital until his Day 100 post-transplant.
On November 4th, a convoy of Classic Ford Broncos will take Fierce Pierce from LaCanada, CA to Thousand Oaks, CA.
We joined Team Be The MatchSM to raise critical funds for patients in need of a marrow transplant.
Your gift of $10 or more 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 us reach our 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!
