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:
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.
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.
