Be The Match is the foundation that supports the National Marrow Donor registry. They raise money to help patients who need bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplants. They also raise awareness of the need for more people to register as donors.
Every year, 10,000 patients with leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases need a marrow transplant from an unrelated donor, but only half receive one. Be The Match is committed to making sure every patient who can be cured by transplant can find a suitable donor.
Be The Match found Betsy her donor and saved her life.
In appreciation for all they do to help patients around the country and around the world, I am donating a portion of the proceeds from every book sold to Be The Match.
