2017 Be The Match Walk+Run - Chicago

Julie's Bone Marrow "birthday"
Julie's Bone Marrow "birthday"

Julie's Jammers

On May 19, 2016, my sister Julie received a life-saving donation of bone marrow from my brother Kevin. With one syringe of marrow, Julie got a second chance at life and a potential cure for her rare type of leukemia. Now, almost a year later, Julie is in remission and doing great.

Our family was incredibly lucky. Only 30% of patients are able to find donors within their family. Everyone else must rely on Bone Marrow registries to find an unrelated donor who could potentially be their cure.

I can't express the relief that our family felt when we found out that Kevin was a match. I support Be the Match because I want every family to feel that same relief soon after receiving some of the worst news of their lives.


The money we raise will:

Help add volunteer marrow donors,

Help patients with transplant costs; and

Fund research -- providing cures to more patients.

Please support me and together we can show blood cancer it has met its match. Thank you!

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.
