I joined Team Be The Match to save lives.
Three years ago, my uncle Steve was diagnosed with both Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He battled it for over a year and tried different chemotherapies, but they didn't give him the results he needed. Finally, his doctor recommended a stem cell transplant and this procedure saved his life.
Now, I am doing an Eagle Scout Project to ensure that other patients receive the life-saving treatment they need. My name is David Jercha, I am 14 years old and I am a Life scout in Troop 10 in Leawood, KS. I hope you will be somebody's match and save a life!
