Britton Swisher's Eagle Project
My name is Britton Swisher. In 2005 at the age of 7 I was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Luekemia. In order to be cured of this disease I would need a bone marrow transplant. I discovered that finding a match can be difficult. I was blessed to have my sister be a perfect match. My sister was able to save my life by being a bone marrow donor. Not everyone is this lucky. I am trying to save lives by signing people up for the bone marrow registry and by raising money for Be the Match. This is my eagle scout project. Please help me in my efforts by donating.
Team Be The Match is important to me
By supporting me, you will help raise funds for patients in need of an unrelated marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. Together we have the potential to truly make a difference in the lives of thousands of men, women and children in need of a life-saving transplant.
What does Be The Match do?
Be The Match works to provide hope and deliver a second chance at life to patients by:
* Recruiting and supporting potential donors: To connect patients with donors, Be The Match manages the largest and most diverse donor registry — nearly 8 million marrow donors and nearly 100,000 cord blood units. Donors can turn to their Donor Advocacy Program for support throughout the donation process.
* Supporting patients: To help patients access treatment, Be The Match offers financial support and educational resources.
* Educating doctors: Referring physicians can turn to Be The Match for information about transplant advances, caring for transplant patients and the importance of timely referral for transplant.
* Advancing science: Be The Match's research programs have advanced the science of bone marrow and cord blood transplant, from better matching the right donor to the right patient for improving post-transplant treatment.
