I am participating in the Be The Match Walk Run in honor of my husband Peter. Pete fought a long and courageous battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia PH+ before passing away from legionnares disease on July 10, 2016. Before his death, Pete received a stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor, thanks to Be The Match. He also received a grant from Be the Match while recuperating from his stem cell. Pete was so grateful for this grant and thankful for the little bit of extra money. I feel that it is important to give back to an organization that made such a difference in my Pete's life. Pete was a loving husband, a devoted father, and a wonderful person. He is missed tremendously by all. Please help us keep Pete's memory alive!
Be The Match helps ensure patients have a match on the Be The Match Registry, grants are available to cover uninsured costs and life-saving research continues.
Please help me reach my 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.

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. Join the fight.
