Every year, 12,000 patients with a blood cancer like leukemia, or other disease like sickle cell anemia, need a marrow transplant to live. They have no matching donor in their family, so they turn to Be The Match.
We're partnering with Be The Match to raise critical funds for patients in need of a marrow transplant. These funds can help save the lives of people on their registry, including WeWork team member Valeria Batista.
Many of you may have had the chance to meet and spend time with Valerie Batista, who is one of WeWork's first 15 employees. If you haven't met Val, you should know that her big smile, endless optimism, and unmatched hustle helped grow WeWork from a small startup with a few locations to the global company we are today.
Unfortunately, Val and many others need a donor, so we're asking the WeWork NYC team to help.
By donating to Be The Match, you can help to add new potential marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs, and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
Together we can help Valerie and others in need find a vital match.
