Dear Friends & Family,
Please join forces with me and Preserve Our Legacy, a Harlem-based not-for-profit dedicated to cancer advocacy, in our mission to save lives and make history! I am alive today because of a cord blood donation, and am dedicated to giving other patients a second chance at life. Please contribute $10 or more and forward this email to your friends and family. 100% of your donation is tax deductible.
A portion of your donation will be used to recruit bone marrow donors (with a special focus on reaching under-represented ethnicities) and to support an innovative umbilical cord blood collection program spearheaded by Preserve Our Legacy. This new program is succeeding beyond our wildest expectations. In under a year, the donation rate at Harlem Hospital has risen to more than double the national average! These cord blood units are being collected to save the lives of patients whose lives depend on a stem-cell transplant. But we need your help to reach more mothers in Harlem and around the world to provide them with education, counseling and support.
The remainder of your donation will help me purchase skeleton equipment (spikes, suits, etc) and pay for my training/competition costs in the upcoming 2011-2012 season, as I prepare to become the first Winter Olympic athlete in Nigeria’s history. And, in 2014, when I am racing down the Olympic slopes in Sochi, Russia, you can say you helped me make it to the finish line.
Thanks for your support! Every dollar counts, and your donation could change someone's life forever.

Please help "Preserve Seun's Dream" by donating just $10.00. This will assist Preserve Our Legacy in helping Seun Adebiyi, who is a cancer survivor and umbilical cord blood recipient, train for his dream of competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Preserve Our Legacy's mission is to educate individuals, especially those from various ethnic groups about bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) and umbilical cord blood donation.
