One of our Okemos families is going through the unimaginable, navigating the brutal waters of childhood cancer. Eighth grader Nathan Casey is battling a second round of an aggressive form of leukemia.
Because he will need to tap into the bone marrow donor pool, we are raising critical funds for patients like Nathan in need of a marrow transplant.
Your gift can add new potential marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
A marrow transplant is a life-saving treatment for more than 70 diseases including leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell. Seventy percent of patients do not have a matching donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match to find an unrelated marrow donor and receive the transplant they need.
Please help us reach our 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!
