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 on Saturday September 9th, and I'd love for you to be part of Team Soaring Eagles.
As you may know, my oldest brother Mark, was diagnosed in April 2015 with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and after the first 40 days in the hospital taking chemotherapy fighting for his life followed by a two month recovery he finished up 30 more days in the hospital and started phase 2 with a bone marrow transplant. On July 29th 2015, I was honored and blessed to be a 100% match and donated my bone marrow to help him beat this dreadful disease.
It's ironic that just about 6 months prior to him being diagnosed, on a whim I decided to send in my Be the Match packet just in case I might be able to help someone fight this disease. Having my maternal grandfather pass away from AML 28 years ago, makes this all the more personal for me in helping fight this disease any way I can. And now, I have the chance to do something about it and you can help, too!
There are many great philanthropic organizations out there and if you choose to donate, I'm grateful for your support but understand if you choose not to.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. 100% of the event proceeds help add new potential bone marrow donors to the registry, help patients struggling with uninsured costs and fund research. Every dollar counts. We would love for you to join us and/or donate to our team. And because we are so passionate about this cause, Tara and I will match your donation dollar for dollar for the first $25 of your gift.
Did you know? A marrow transplant can be 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 unrelated donors and receive the transplant they need.

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.
