Please join us for oysters, BBQ, live music, and a silent auction to support Be The Match®!
In 2016, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I received a bone marrow transplant and today I'm cancer-free. I continue to visit local leukemia patients while some of them await a life-saving bone marrow transplant...but that depends on whether a match is found.
"For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 25 years Be The Match ® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program ® (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant." They conduct research to improve transplant outcomes, provide support and resources for patients, and partner with a global network.
A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Be The Match, and ALL proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Be The Match.
I hope you can make it to the oyster roast to support this great cause, and to celebrate life with me, thanks to my family, my friends, MUSC, and especially to my donor!
