Our fabulous “Marrow Me Cara” crew is teaming up for the Be The Match Walk+Run in Grant Park, Chicago on April 29th because we believe in saving lives! Aplastic Anemia has a cure. We need YOU to join the fight to help Cara and patients like her.
Cara was diagnosed with a life-threatening and rare bone marrow failure disease, called Aplastic Anemia. The only cure is a bone marrow transplant. Patients rely on Be The Match to find their life saving match.
The "Marrow Me Cara" campaign was created by our family to educate the public about bone marrow transplants, and dismantle the fear of becoming a donor. Our team has registered hundreds of willing donors with Be The Match from all over the country, and now we are putting a 5k team give back to Be The Match for their endless support. We are reaching out because we need YOU to join the fight and save lives.
We have set a fundraising goal and we need your help to reach it.
The money we raise together will: --Build the national bone marrow registry with life-saving donors --Pay for transplant costs for patients in need --Fund research that will save lives
Please support us and together we can show Aplastic Anemia and other blood diseases it has met its match.

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.
