Team Aloha Joe

Thanks to this wonderful organization, our beloved Joe had another chance at life after he was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a blood cancer. Joe received a stem cell transplant on 7/10/2015, from an unrelated donor from Glasgow, Scotland.

100 days after the transplant, Joe was declared CANCER FREE and lived a total of 504 days after his transplant at UCLA Medical Center before he succumbed to complications from an infection.

For the 3rd year in a row, Team Aloha Joe is participating in the Be The Match Walk+Run to raise money to deliver more cures and SAVE MORE LIVES! We would love for you to join us!

If you can’t make the event, you can also help us reach our 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.

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.

Thank you,

Vicki, Mark and Brian

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.
