I have the POWER to help DELIVER CURES for blood cancer—and you do too.
This year, my fundraising will be in honor of my cousin Ryan. Ryan was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in 2001 and after an 8 year battle, fighting both AML and Hodgkin’s, he passed away in 2009 at the age of 23. Ryan received 2 bone marrow transplants during his battle, both from his brother. These bone marrow transplants extended his life and brought us more time with him.
Ryan was one of the most positive people I have ever met and his life had an impact on anyone that was lucky enough to know him. His charismatic personality lit up every room he was in. Ryan had a unique gift to find the fun in every experience he had. He loved sports, hunting and fishing. He had a vivid imagination and told stories that kept everyone entertained. I am lucky to have many memories of growing up with him and they all contain laughter and happiness.
Please consider making a donation to my fundraising page in honor of my cousin Ryan and to help others find 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.
