I joined Team Be The Match because I’m passionate about saving lives.
And for my birthday this year, I am hosting a campaign for Be The Match via Zoom on July 30 from 6:30-7:30pm EST! Please join the event and share with 5–10 friends you think might be interested. You can also make a tax-deductible contribution to Be The Match to help me meet my fundraising goal.
About the Event
For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Patients depend on Be The Match and its supporters to find a match to save their life. My info session will give you information about Be The Match and its mission to help you decide if you want to register to be a peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) or marrow donor or even just make a financial donation to this amazing organization.
Registration with Be The Match does not guarantee donation—only 1 in 430 people on the Be The Match Registry will go on to donate. Donors and patients who share the same ancestry are most likely to match, but 70% of patients needing a marrow transplant do not have a matching donor in their family! You could be their cure.
If you decide to donate instead, 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 me reach my 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!
