Cheryl is a 55 year old mother and grandmother from Painesville who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in Sept. of 2012. As a consequence, Cheryl had to resign from a job where she was employed for over 20 years. She was also an active member of Montville Church of Christ where she taught Bible School. Her diagnosis resulted in a compromised immune system that prohibits her from doing the things she loves. The family will be holding a bone marrow drive. Even though her chemotherapy has been successful, Cheryl will eventually require a bone marrow transplant in order to prevent relapse. Cheryl has a chromosome that makes finding a match challenging.
Please help add us more members to the Be The Match Registry at our Donor Drive to ensure that everyone who needs a transplant finds a donor. All it takes to join the Registry is a simple swab of a Q-tip! Did you know that 70-80% of donors save a life by donating stem cells? This simple process only involves two IVs and is not much more difficult than giving blood! AMAZING! Please join the registry. You may never get called, but if you do, what a legacy you can leave!

Every year, thousands of people of all ages are diagnosed with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases. For many of them, the best hope is a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant from a matching donor. Seventy percent of patients do not have a donor in their family and depend on the Be The Match Registry to find a match.
The Be The Match Registry is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP). The NMDP is dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it.
You have the power to help by making a donation and joining the registry!
