Pam is a positive, energetic and smart woman. We have been married for nearly 14 years. Everyone she meets comes to love her and enjoy her company. I truly don’t know anyone who does not like Pam. She is just one of those people who is always positive and who people love to be with. In 1998 Pam was diagnosed with Essential Thrombycemaia. This is a disease whereby the body produces too many platelets. Unfortunately from there the disease became Myelofibrosis which is a disorder of the bone marrow, in which the marrow is replaced by fibrous (scar) tissue. The only known cure is a bone marrow transplant. So, for several years, knowing we faced this challenge, we have been seeking a bone marrow match. To date, no perfect match.
There are two very important things you can do to help:
1. You can register. You may be the one to save Pam’s life. It’s simple, free and painless and if you’re not saving Pam’s life, you could be the sole reason for saving someone else’s. You can visit http://www.marrow.org to register and see if you’re a match for Pam or any of the 10,000 people searching today.
2. You can contribute financially. It costs approximately $100 to add a new member to the registry. Be The Match relies on generous donations to make sure that everyone who wants to register can. Please consider contributing what you can to help fund this important effort. You can visit http://www.bethematchfoundation.org to contribute. Any donation would be greatly appreciated
I appreciate any support and see you at the finish line!
