I am participating in this year’s Be The Match Walk+Run to support my friend Linda. Join me in helping raise funds to save more patients’ lives!
In 2008 I got Acute lymphoblastic lymphoma in my bone and also leukaemia. I underwent 2 years of intensive chemotherapy during which time I had to stop working and had to be supported by friends and family. I enjoyed a short period of remission but in 2012 the cancer returned and my only chance of survival was to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Luckily I found a bone marrow match quickly - my sister! She underwent the very painful procedure to harvest her life saving bone marrow. In addition to the bone marrow transplant I had to undertake a course of radiation. While I am in remission now I still suffer from the side effects of the various treatments, as do so many other radiation and chemotherapy recipients.
There tens of thousands of people in the United States who are desperately in need of a bone marrow transplant. The Be the Match charity maintains a registry of bone marrow donners and provides support, including financial, to both bone marrow donners and recipients. I'm raising money and awareness for the Be the match foundation in a hope to help other like me who are in need see another dayI've set a fundraising goal and I need your help to reach it.The money I raise will:

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.
