Make Me Stronger

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.

Are you ready for Ek-tober?

Ek-tober | Pay-It-Forward Match Challenge – EXTENDED


Update: As of 10/30, Ek-tober challenge participants registered 156 NEW registrants in the Bone Marrow Registry! 18 people completed the challenge and 7 people went above and beyond by registering well over 5 people. Some registered over 20 people!

Many people are close to completing their challenge, so we decided to extend the challenge deadline thru to 12/31/13!

For those that didn’t get to join the challenge in October but are still interested in participating, please email us at

Goal:  Match the number of donors that Make Me Stronger (MMS) has registered in the Bone Marrow Registry over the past year by at least 606 new registrants. (Deadline to help reach our goal has been extended to 12/31/13) 

Duration:  10/10/13 to 10/30/13 (Deadline extended to 12/31/13)

Details:  Ekata’s birthday is on 10/30. So, for those of you who would like to give her a special gift this year, join us in our Ek-tober Pay-it-Forward Match Challenge by recruiting at least 5 new registrants into the Bone Marrow Registry (committed donors) by PERSONAL OUTREACH (phone or in-person). Those who have registered 5 new people will be invited to a Match Challenge Celebration with Ekata in NYC (Date TBD) to celebrate her birthday and YOUR valuable contribution to her and many others that are in need of a bone marrow match.
