Magda Silva joined us today to tell us about Be The Match Walk+Run which is a fundraising event that helps patients with blood cancers like leukemia find a marrow donor and receive a life-saving transplant. Every four minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. It can happen to anyone at any time. But so can a cure - a marrow transplant. The cure for blood cancer is in the hands of ordinary people. Most of us won't have a marrow donor in our family and Be The Match matches volunteer marrow donors with patients who need them.
