We joined Team Be The Match to raise critical funds for patients in need of a marrow transplant.
Our brother, John Marshall, lost his fight against Leukemia on December 30th 2017. John was a good man, hard worker and loving father. He will be dearly missed.
Hard to believe that John had only 1 matching donor in over 27 Million registered. Though it only takes 1 donor to save a life, his single donor match was not able to commit to giving when requested.
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.
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.
JOIN the Marrow Registry: its just a few questions, and a swab of the cheek. Its also a very "simple process" for the donor to give bone marrow.
Please help us spread the word on Be the Match to help other families and their loved ones! Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. Together, we can make a difference!
