2018 Be The Match Walk+Run - New York

Blood cancer has met its match. Join the fight.

Zach Attack

We often talk to you about opportunities to support long-term research into a cure for cancer and Zach's underlying condition, Fanconi Anemia. We don't talk often enough about promoting and supporting the national bone marrow registry - Be The Match.

Our son Zach received a successful bone marrow transplant on May 2, 2017. One year later, he's 7 years old, fully recovered, and a proud new 2nd grader.

We were blessed to find 3 near-perfect donors for Zach. Not everyone is so lucky. In fact, there's a HUGE ethnicity gap. About 80% of white children find a matching donor; tragically, only 20-30% of Latino and African-American children find a match. Every child deserves the same life-saving opportunity, regardless of who you are or where you're from.

That's a big part of why we're participating in this year’s Be The Match Walk+Run. Please join us in helping raise funds to save more patients’ lives! These kids need our help.

Our goal is to raise $1,000. The money we raise will:

  • Add volunteer marrow donors to the registry
  • Assist patients with transplant costs such as hospital stays, exams and prescriptions
  • Fund groundbreaking research to provide a cure for more patients

Please support our family in this effort. Together we can show blood cancer it has met its match. We need YOU to join the fight and save more lives.

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.
