Our team - Team Krissy - is yet again participating in this year's Be The Match Walk+Run because it’s crucial to join the fight against blood cancer. This time from the side of already receiving her match, Krissy and all the Team Krissy supporters are joinging forces again to help raise funds to save more patients’ lives!
Particularly special this year, on December 1st, it will be Krissy's 1st "birthday" signifying the day she received her new donor stem cells.
"I am LIVING PROOF that these stem cell and bone marrow transplants can be life savers, however, it's not possible without a donor! Everyone should register so that you might be the one to save someone's life." - Krissy Kobata, patient survivor
We could not be more grateful that her donor stepped up to the plate and gave the most generous gift anyone could give... life. Krissy is doing well and recovering better than expected. Without organizations like Be the Match, her journey of life would have been a much different one and a much shorter one. We'd like you to join us by either making a financial gift or by being a member of our team and helping us reach our fundraising goal.
The money we raise will:
Please support us and together we can show blood cancer it has met its match. Krissy is finally able to say that she is a SURVIVOR! Let's help more patients say this.
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.
