I am participating in this year’s Be The Match Walk+Run because it’s important that we continue the fight against blood cancer. This fundraising event helps patients with blood cancers like leukemia find a marrow donor and receive a life-saving transplant.Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. It can happen to anyone at any time, but so can a cure – a marrow transplant. The majority of patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family and so Be The Match helps match volunteer unrelated marrow donors with those patients who need them.
I registered with Be The Match over 11 years ago and was fortunate enough to get the call last September stating I was a match for someone. I knew immediately that I would help and after a couple months of tests to ensure I was the best match, I donated my marrow on December 28, 2017. While I do not know the current health of my recipient I am hopeful that it was successful and allows him more time with family and friends. Please join me in helping raise funds to save more patients’ lives!

Please support me and together we can show blood cancer it has met its match. I walk in memory of my dad and hope that my story will encourage others to help however they can.

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.
