Unfortunately on March 16th 2016 Skip Montgomery passed away after a 9 year battle against MDS. In honor of Skip I'm continuing to participate in the be the match 5k. Please consider joining our team or donating.
Skip was very involved with the be the match community. He loved getting his friends, family, and co workers together for the be the match 5k. Skip also attended several meetings regarding bone marrow transplants and about his MDS. At these meetings he met several people who were experiencing similar battles to his own.
Even though Skip (my father) passed away shortly after recieving a bone marrow transplant, my family and I are grateful that Skip was able to be matched with a complete stranger in hopes to overcome his battle with MDS. Donating money will help further research efforts to eventually perfect the bone marrow transplant. In addition to considering donating money, please consider joining the be the match registry by doing a simple cheek swab in hopes of becoming a donor.
peace, love, and fight cancer!

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.
