In the five years since the Foundation began:

  • We have provided over 47,000 meals to families in need.
  • We have registered over 7,000 new bone marrow donors.
  • We have matched 6 donors with patients in need of bone marrow transplants, giving these patients a chance at life.

There Goes My Hero: Swab a Cheek…Save a Life!

Our mission is to restore hope to Leukemia patients and their families by increasing bone marrow registrants, providing nutritious meals, and supporting blood cancer research.
