The Perfect Match

at Union College CAP Program

Please join me and the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation to help children and adults suffering from leukemia, lymphoma, and other cancers and genetic disorders find matching donors for blood and marrow transplants.  Help us to further our mission of: A match. Anytime. Anywhere. For anyone.

 

In October of 2014, I was identified as a 100% match for a 2-year-old boy suffering from hemophagocytosis and was able to donate my bone marrow to help save his life.  On January 17, 2016 I finally got to meet the little boy that taught me what life is about.  Mario is fun loving and a sweetheart that has a long road ahead of him.    

 

This was an extraorginary experience in my life that has opened my eyes to the fact that 1 in every 200 donors ages 18-30 will be called a match for a patient in need.  Currently there are way more people in need of match than there are donors.  Together we can improve those odds.
