I joined Team Be The Match To bring awareness and represent my son! In November of 2019 my 7 year old son, Nathan, was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia/ bone marrow failure. It is a rare condition where his body stops producing cells and starts killing the cells already made.
On June 26, 2020 my son received his bone marrow transplant that saved his life. His bone marrow came from an unknown angel that was founded through Be the Match! It has given him a new chance at life and a new chance to be a kid again!
Be the Match has allowed my son to heal and live a long life, it has allowed our family peace and comfort. It will forever play a huge rule in our lives.
i am running to represent the strength my son has had during all of this! I am also running to bring awareness and raise money to allow other families to recieve the same treatment my son was given!
Any money donated helps save a life or if you wish to donate in other ways Be the Match has a link to recieve the free test swab kit. It's done at home and sent out, you will go into the system and potentially be matched with someone in need of a bone marrow transplant!
