THE STORY:

On a random July night, a friend of mine, shared with me some devastating news that hit him by utter shock. He explained, a very close friend of his, Sandy Flint, was recently diagnosed with aplastic anemia. At the time, I did not know much about the disease, but with my medical background, I knew it wasn't good. 

After some research, I discovered that aplastic anemia is a blood disorder in which the body's bone marrow doesn't make enough new blood cells. Bone marrow is a sponge-like tissue inside the bones. It makes stem cells that develop into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. In people who have aplastic anemia, the body doesn't make enough of these cells. 

The treatment for aplastic anemia includes blood transfusions, blood and bone marrow stem cell transplants, and medications. In order for many individuals diagnosed with aplastic anemia to be cured from this disease, they need a match from a bone marrow donor. This, my friends is where I ask you to step in...

70% of people diagnosed with aplastic anemia do not find a donor match within their family. Luckily, for Sandy, his sister was a perfect match. But, in order to help the unlucky individuals out there find their perfect match, I ask two things of you...

First, join the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry, www.racingtoregister.org , it's a simple swab of the cheek, anyone can do that! 

Secondly, help support me pound more pavement by running the Philadelphia Half Marathon on November 18, 2012, all the while, raising money for a great cause through Team Racing to Register. 

Any amount is appreciated, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

You are one click away from making a difference in people lives, and at the end of the day, isn't that what life's all about anyway?!?!
