It was our father's wish to have a Be The Match memorial established in his name. Dad had a rare blood cancer that progressed to AML, despite treatment, in just a few short months. The only cure was a stem cell transplant. Due to having a very rare HLA type, Dad had no matches in the world wide registry. But Be The Match found a perfect match in a young male donor in Gernamy through their international connections. Sadly, the cancer progressed too quickly and agressively for Dad to be a recipient.
While he was living, our family hosted several very successful donor drives. Now, in his memory, we've joined Team Be The Match to honor Dad and raise critical funds for patients and families like ours in need of a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.
Your gift can add new potential bone marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs, and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
Please help us in our ongoing memorial fund by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift delivers cures to patients and families desperate for a second chance at life. Every dollar counts. Together, we can make a difference!
