Did I ever tell you about the little boy and his tricycle racing through the cancer ward at UNC Chapel Hill? While I was in the hospital completing my 3 week stay, a little boy, maybe 4 years old, was also there being treated. Patients are encouraged to be active and walk while we recover to help the body heal better, faster. This little tyke mostly rode, no sped, through the halls with all his cords and machine attached to him ringing the bell as he turned corners! Needless to say his mother, while young, had to endure and keep up. It was delightful yet sad to witness. It made me think what if it was my baby? Would I be as strong as her? I don’t want to be. What I mean is, let’s CURE this sucker! Please join my family and I in bringing awareness, hope and more research to all forms of blood cancer. “Walk” with us as we find a cure for blood related cancers by participating in this awesome fundraiser sponsored by BE THE MATCH!
Year 3 and still going hard! Still helping raise awareness. Still fighting. Join team Kim's Starrs to walk in this year's 5k. The Be The Match Walk+Run raises funds to connect patients with their marrow match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. With the public’s help, they give patients a reason to hope and the power to heal.
I am inviting you to walk with me and be a part of my team. If you are not in the Charlotte area, please consider making a tax-deductible donation instead. 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.
I have the POWER to help DELIVER CURES for blood cancer—and you do too.

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.
