Once again, Marcel's daughter Danielle and I plan to raise money for Be the Match with our awesome team, Marcel's Marrow Minions! Sadly, this year, we will be walking in memory of Marcel instead of walking with him. Today, March 30th would have been his 71st birthday. It's the first time in 17 years that I won't be celebrating it with him. He's only been gone 3 months but it feels like an eternity.
So today in his honor we'd like to kick off our fundraising efforts and make it be our best year yet. Although Marcel ultimately lost his battle, his transplant was a success and Danielle and I will be forever grateful to Be the Match for the extra time we got with him. With that time he was able to fullfill a life long dream of having a "cabin in the woods" in the Adirondacks.
Please consider joining our team and/or donating to Be the Match and honoring Marcel. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support!

Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer.
Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia or other diseases like sickle cell anemia, need a marrow transplant to survive. Most patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family — and that’s when they turn to Be The Match®. By participating in a Be The Match Walk+Run, or donating funds, you are providing life-saving support to those patients in need. Do right, join the fight.
