A Bone Marrow Transplant Can Save a LifeNews — By nygal on May 9, 2010 at 4:58 am
Leukemia is a random killer. It can strike any one of us at any time. But for many, there is hope of a cure through a bone marrow, blood stem cell or umbilical cord blood transplant. In fact, one in 200 Americans will receive such a transplant in their lifetime.
In April 2010, Matt Fenster, 35 years old and father of four young children, was diagnosed with AML – Acute Myelogenous Leukemia – He now needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life.
Matt is also a husband, son brother and a great friend to many. He has worked endlessly to help his community in Riverdale, NY and beyond. Now he needs your help.
By making a contribution to the Matt Fenster Donor Circle, additional donors will be registered as potential bone marrow matches for Matt. The more donors, the better the chance of finding a match for Matt and others waiting for life-saving bone marrow transplants.
For every $54 dollars donated, a Bone Marrow Registration kit is processed and a potential donor is added to the national registry of bone marrow donors. Any amount you can give will have an impact on our efforts.
