Welcome to Betsy's Page
Betsy, an energetic woman, mother of two boys, a wife, teacher, mentor and friend to many, was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is currently being treated at the City of Hope Hospital. To treat life threatening illnesses such as Betsy’s leukemia, bone marrow transplants are needed.
Betsy and countless patients like her, rely on the BE THE MATCH bone marrow registry to find matching bone marrow donors for their transplants – only half will receive one.
The good news is YOU can help! Joining the registry is free, simple and painless. All it takes is a quick cheek swab and five minutes of paperwork, no appointment necessary. By becoming part of the registry, you will give thousands of patients across the country hope for a life-saving transplant.
While joining the registry doesn’t guarantee you will donate, should you be a match, you’ll be given additional information on this cost-free and relatively painless procedure that can save a life. For more information on The Be The Match Registry, contact Joyce Valdez at (626) 373-4000 or email@example.com.
We are hoping to raise $500.00 to help pay for the tissue typing of all new registry members signing up for the Be the Match Registry on behalf of Betsy. In addition to Betsy, thousands of leukemia and lymphoma patients rely on the registry to find an unrelated marrow donor to save their lives. It does cost approximately $100 for each donor to be tested and added to the registry.
Your contribution, in any amount, will help us with out goal. 100% of the money donated will help add more donors to the registry.
By supporting us, your "tax-deductible" contribution will help add new donors to this lifesaving registry. Once a donor is added to the registry, the donor will be searched everyday until they are 61 years of age. Your financial contribution today can mean numerous lives saved today and for years to come.
Together, we have the potential to truly make a difference in Betsy's life and lives of men, women and children in need of a life-saving transplant.
