Did you know that for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other blood diseases, there is a cure? All it takes is a marrow donor. KATU and Be The Match are teaming up this summer to raise money to help more patients find their match and their cure. From children dreaming of a healthy future, to those just wanting to have a full retirement, people of all ages are hoping to find their match and find their cure.
Magda Silva from Be the Match joined us to share how your generous donation helps recruit more marrow donors, helps patients afford transplants, and funds critical research. Giving is easy, just click here, or watch KATU:
