I have the POWER to help DELIVER CURES for blood cancer—and you do too.
I am participating in the Be The Match Walk+Run to raise money to deliver more cures and SAVE MORE LIVES.
My grandson, Ben Michael Teach, passed away on February 20, 2015 after a sixteen month battle with leukemia. Ben had the normal strain that children are diagnosed with, ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia), and also AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia) which normally strikes after the age of 40. To have both at the age of three is extremely rare, so Ben's chances of survival were very slim. He battled valiently for sixteen months, mostly with smiles and jokes, rarely with tears or complaints. Last April 11, he received a bone marrow transplant and was cancer free for about six months, an extra gift to all who knew him. Ben's transplant was facilitated by the Be The Match organization. On April 29, 2017 the Teach family, will participate in the walk as "Team Ben". Any donation would be greatly appreciated!
Now I need YOU to step up and be a hero to a patient in need.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. 100% of the event proceeds help add new potential marrow donors to the registry, help patients struggling with uninsured costs and fund research. Every dollar counts.
~Thank you in advance for your generosity~

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.
