Our team, Lust For Life, is participating in the Be The Match Walk+Run to raise money to deliver more cures and SAVE MORE LIVES—and you can help too! Garth was one of the top fundraisers in 2014 and we'd like our team to follow his lead in 2018. Please join our team and walk/run with us in his memory. If you can’t make the event, you can also help us reach our 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/stem cell 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. Garth was to receive a stem cell transplant in 2014. Through the Be The Match registry they found a 21 year old male match that was willing to donate for him.
Please join us in this very important cause that is near to our hearts.
Be well and thank you!
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.
