Sydney LaFollette Miss Piedmont's Outstanding Teen

Hi everyone!  My name is Sydney LaFollette, and I am the reigning Miss Piedmont's Outstanding Teen.  This is my 4th year of involvement with Be the Match Walk/Run.  In addition to fundraising, I also host bone marrow drives throughout the year.  To date, I have hosted 6, and have recruited over 600 donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry!  

I teamed up with Be the Match four years ago after my father, Travis LaFollette was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow.  A stem cell transplant put him in remission, where he remains.  I wanted to give back to the organization that is instrumental in promoting continual research.

Please consider joining our team and/or donating.  Blood cancer has a cure. We need YOU to join the fight and help more patients. 

We'd like you to join us by either by making a financial gift or by joining our team and helping us reach our fundraising goal.

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 us and together we can show blood cancer it has met its match.

Thank you!

Sydney LaFollette, Miss Piedmont's Outstanding Teen 2017

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.
