On behalf of my wonderful patients at Rush University Medical Center, and on behalf of friends and friends' family members who were able to receive stem cell or marrow transplants, I am participating in the Be The Match Walk+Run to raise money to deliver more cures and SAVE MORE LIVES. My Bone Marrow Transplant team at Rush have a great group coming out for the Walk/Run this year, and we hope to raise money for this great cause and bring awareness to the need for marrow donors.
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.
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.

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.
