Kickin’ for Kids is Proud to Participate

Please join us this year on Sunday, April 1 for Tampa’s inaugural Be The One Run and help Tampa/St. Pete be one of the first regions in the U.S. to promote this growing event.

Each year, 10,000 patients with leukemia, lymphoma and 70 other life-threatening illnesses need a marrow transplant but have no family donor match. They need Be The Match to help them find an unrelated donor to receive the transplant they need.

Urgent update!!

While we were posting this notice, we received this from friends on Facebook:

“Saankethi is a two-and-a-half year old girl suffering from MDS. Her parents had to bring her here from India to receive a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor. Her father is in IT, currently working on contract with a U.S. company. Saankethi’s 5 year-old brother is not a match for her. Please spread the word, register to be a marrow donor, or contact Be The Match to host a marrow drive.
