Please join in my Spook-tacular Fundraiser for BeTheMatch, an organization that raises money to assist in finding marrow donor matches, educates, conducts research, and advocates in legislature to protect patient access to care.
For patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, a bone marrow or cord blood transplant may be their best or only hope for a cure. Yet 70% of patients who need a transplant to do not have a fully matched donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match® and our supporters to find a match to save their life. We also provide one-on-one support to patients and their families throughout the transplant journey.
As a bone marrow recipient, this cause means more to me that most. 19 years and six months ago, complete stranger named Kevin gave his bone marrow to save my life which was threatened by ABL, a unique and rare form of Leukemia.
My goal is to raise $500 between today and Thanksgiving.
