2018 Be The Match Walk+Run - Chicago

Aplastic Anemia has met its match. Do right, join the fight.
Aplastic Anemia has met its match. Do right, join the fight.

Marrow Me Cara Team

Our fabulous “Marrow Me Cara” crew is teaming up for our second annual Be The Match Walk+Run on Sunday, May 6, 2018 in downtown Chicago's Grant Park because we believe in saving lives! Aplastic Anemia has a cure. We need YOU to join the fight to help Cara and patients like her.

Cara was diagnosed with a life-threatening and rare bone marrow failure disease, called Aplastic Anemia in 2016. The only cure for Aplastic Anemia is a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, like 70% of patients she did not have any matches in my family and relies on the national bone marrow registry to find a match. 

The "Marrow Me Cara" campaign was created by Cara and family to educate the public about bone marrow transplants, and dismantle the fear of becoming a donor. Our team has registered 1,100+ willing donors with Be The Match from all over the country, and now we are building a 5k team give back to Be The Match for their endless support. 

Last year, we raised $9,656! Can you help us beat it? Please make a lifesaving tax-deductible contribution. Every dollar counts!

100% of money raised will directly:
--Build the national bone marrow registry with life-saving donors
--Pay for transplant costs for patients in need
--Fund research that will save lives

Please support us and together we can show Aplastic Anemia and other blood diseases it has met its match.

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.
