A call to action. A cry for help. An opportunity for you to realize your power to give strength to someone affected by a blood cancer (Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma). Get involved. Make someone stronger.
After announcing her diagnosis with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) on Good Morning America in June 2012, Robin joined forces with Be The Match to inform the public about the critical need for more young, diverse donors.
Robin’s story has triggered an outpouring of support from across the nation. In the months following her initial appeal, more than 44,000 people have joined the Be The Match Registry.
Unlike Robin, most patients do not have matching donors within their families. That’s why Be The Match’s mission is so vital. This nonprofit organization connects patients with donors – people from all backgrounds willing to help any patient in need – and facilitates life-saving transplants.
