As you may or may not know, Sam, has been working at Be The Match for three years. What you may not know is we have a personal connection to the company that started before she began working there.
Senior year of high school, our friend and friend to so many others, Ann Haering gained her wings after battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. To know Ann was to know true happiness, passion, determination, and positivity. Losing someone you care about is never easy, especially when they mean so much to so many people. Be The Match works with patients like Ann, who are battling blood cancers and diseases receive blood stem cell or marrow transplants from a perfectly matched donor. September is Lymphoma, Leukemia, and Sickle Cell Awareness Month, and September 18th also happens to be Ann's birthday!
To celebrate her, we want to raise at least $500 for Be The Match by the by the end of the month to add new potential bone marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs, and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
Every dollar counts and delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. If you are not able to donate at this time, consider joining the registry to be a potential lifesaving donor at: https://bethematch.org/ and raise a glass on the 18th to celebrate the friend who brought us together and forever changed our lives.
If you have any questions about Be The Match, Ann, and why we are so passionate about this mission, please reach out. Together, we can make a difference!
Sam and Dalton
EDIT: Since you all are so amazing and we already hit $500 (WOW) and one registry sign up, we are going to try and raise $750! We are humbled and grateful to have such amazing people in our lives, THANK YOU!
