In honor of my late grandfather, Lester Benson, I am hosting a marrow donor registry drive to add more donors to the Be The Match registry for patients like baby Artan (pink) and baby Rishik. In July 2000, my grandfather received a marrow transplant to help cure his diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma cancer. His marrow donor came via Be The Match; my grandfather had 3 siblings but none of them were a match for his marrow transplant. In October 2000 my grandfather sadly lost his battle with Multiple Myeloma but my family is grateful for the extra time we got to spend with my grandfather thanks to his marrow donor.
What does Be The Match do?
Be The Match offers people the unique opportunity to give a life-saving marrow transplant to patients in need. Thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases depend on the Be The Match Registry, the largest and most diverse registry in the world, to find a life-saving donor. We all have the power to heal, the power to save a life.
