I met @genesis_loves_you_broski and her family Friday night too. She has Sickle Cell and @bethematch is in search of a bone marrow donor for her as well. It’s so easy to join the registry. Just contact Be The Match, they’ll send you a kit so you can swab inside of your cheek and you mail it back in. If you are found to be a match for a patient, they’ll contact you to see if you’re still willing to help save someone’s life. ❣️
I was reminded this morning that today marks 1 year since my donor experience with Be The Match. Joining the registry was my way of supporting a friend during her fight against leukemia. When I got the call that I was a match, it was my way of honoring her. I wear this pin on my coat to work every day to remember her and the thousands of other patients still waiting on their match. Today, one year later, I want to encourage as many people as I can to join the registry and give hope to someone out there who may be battling too. For more information or to have a free swab kit sent directly to your door, head on over to https://bethematch.org/support-the-cause/donate-bone-marrow/join-the-marrow-registry/
Did you know you can join the bone marrow donor registry?! You register online and they send your kit in the mail you swab your cheek and send it back! So simple!! Go to bethematch.org to get started!!
3 years ago I held this magic bag of donor cells and we prayed over them. Prayed for my selfless and generous donor. And for the bone marrow transplant that would save my life. Words seem inadequate here. So let’s just say Happy 3rd Birthday to me! And I’m ever so grateful to you, selfless, anonymous donor. I pray I can give you a thank you hug one day. #bethematch#happybirthday#inyourfacecancer
Hoping that Christmas Spirit is running through the cast and crew of @patriotsdayfilm You folks were probably the reason Lucas found a match in the bone marrow registry. However he ended up with a life threatening auto immune disease as a complication from his transplant. We could use your help to raise awareness for him. All he wants is a service dog. Please consider posting about this kiddo and tagging him so the link in his bio can be seen and shared? @michellemonaghan @rachelbrosnahan @pberg44 @markwahlberg @chrisoshea10 @bostoncasting 🐶🙏🏼❤️ We want to thank you for your posts when we were on set. Without them, he may not be here today. Complications can happen, and it was just when life was starting to get back to normal around here. We need your help! @busyphilipps @theellenshow @evangelinelillyofficial and @chy_leigh we wouldn’t mind if you wanted to share either ;) cuz we just love you ladies and we are seriously here for all of your shows. @theyogacouple we love you as well. You have brought me (Luke’s Mom) back to my mat and onto my own personal yoga journey. Thank you all very deeply for your consideration! Oh and @chocolatedogcharlie we love you!

An update on my journey to become a bone marrow donor! I have officially been added to the registry for @bethematch
I know by joining I may never get a call from them, but that isn't what I am praying for. If there is a chance for me to help someone by giving them a part of me, I want to be able to do just that.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. ~Proverbs 3:27
Hey guys this is really important to me. It truly is. I'm not doing it to get recognition or to get money (yes some people actually have the decency to demambd to be payed). I just joined a boone marrow doner registry. For those of who don't know bone marrow is a tissue inside the bone responsible for creating new blood cells. Many illnesses like leukemia, lymphomas, severe aplastic anemia, immune system disorders, to name a few, require bone marrow transplants to be able to get cured. Unfortunately not just anyone can donate to a specific person. To be able to donate to someone you have to be a match and sometimes people that desperately need one don't have a match in their family or circle of friends that are willing to donate as it's said to be a painful process and in the 21st century most people don't do things without them benefiting from it which is quie sad. I just joined a bone marrow donor registry called Be The Match where I'll be swab checked and added to the list. I'll get a call or email as soon as they know I'm a match with someone. It could be tomorrow or it could be years from now. As I said in the beginning I don't want recognition for doing this I just want to make a difference in someone else's life and I need your guys help to do this. Even if you can't donate for any reason, sharing it is a close second to making a difference. So please share this! The website is bethematch.org
Plase share! Ypu never know when you or someone you know and love will need a bone marrow transplant (hopefully you or anyone you know has to! Stay healthy!) #bonemarrow#donor#bonemarrowdonor#bethematch#makeachange#share#savealife#literally#depression#anxiety#depressed#ocd#bipolar#adhd
The perfect gift for any patient battling cancer. It’s not a gift that screams “I feel sorry for you”, it’s a “don’t worry, I’m here for you. You got this!” kinda gift. 💕🎁
