I joined Team Be The Match because my husband Bob Sauer has recently been diagnosed with myelofibrosis, a rare blood cancer. Bob needs to find a stem cell donor between the ages of 18-44, optimally some who shares his Japanese-American heritage. If you are in this group, please consider registering to be a stem cell donor. There's no cost for potential donors 18-44 years old and you can start by requesting a cheek swab and returning it to Be The Match. https://bethematch.org/support-the-cause/donate-bone-marrow/join-the-marrow-registry/. Note that Bob needs stem cells, not bone marrow.
If you aren't a potential donor, please consider a gift to continue the research and support programs of Be The Match. Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. Every dollar counts. Together, we can make a difference!
Thank you from Rita and Bob!
