BENEFITING: The Icla da Silva Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2016
The Icla da Silva Foundation is the largest recruitment center for the Be The Match Registry in the United States. It recruits over 38,000 new potential bone marrow donors every year, with a strong focus on minority communities.
Bone marrow donors from the registry are used for patients as a last resort for cure with life threatening illnesses such as leukemia, immunodeficiencies and sickle cell anemia. Being a match is like winning the lottery - you have to play to win and its a life-changing miracle when it happens!
Your donation helps to recruit more marrow donors, provides free testing for patient's families to see if they are a match, creates awareness about the need for marrow donors and helps provide financial assistance to families going through the bone marrow transplant process.
You too can make a difference !
