Be the match. Blood cancer has met its match.

My wife’s best friend from high school, her husband found out he had blood cancer a couple years ago. She ask my wife to get with be the match and do a 5k for awareness and to help raise money for be the match. Jeff is the one in the news article, he is my wife’s friends husband. Aaron is the other recipient and I’ve known him and his whole family my whole life, they live close as well.

Last year was the first year, my wife worked hard to head this up in our area. They raised around $16,000 and all the money went to be the match.

I didn’t get to attend last year but I was blessed yesterday to attend and actually help with the event. There was enough money raised that be the match flew in 2 donors and their families to meet their recipients. One from Arkansas and one from Washington state. Here’s a news story on one of them. https://www.wxii12.com/article/bone-mar ... t/27061849

Final numbers aren’t in yet but as of today it’s almost $20,000 for this event with some more coming in. It was a very heart touching event watching these people meet the one who saved their life.

I talked with a representative from be the match yesterday and she said they have about 10 of these events a year and they are all community lead. If you would like to help them with another you can find their website and get the ball rolling. It truly is life changing.

Here’s photos of the recipients meeting their donor.

Another news station picked up the other donors story.

:thanx:
We need many more donors...blood and organs! I used to be a regular blood donor...enjoyed the camaraderie, juice and cookies!! Unfortunately, they won't take mine now after breast cancer. It's (pretty much) painless and can definitely save lives...everyone should give!
