     Monsignor Arthur F. Valenzano was the rector of Baltimore’s Basilica of the Assumption when he passed away from leukemia in September 2015. He had battled the disease since 2006 and had two bone marrow transplants at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

     For many blood cancer patients, a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant is the only hope for a cure, but they need a perfect matching donor found on the international bone marrow donor registry. All it takes is a cheek swab to get on the registry. Consider swabbing in memory of Monsignor Valenzano and bring hope to patients and families waiting for a bone marrow transplant.

     If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Kristina Gaddy, bone marrow drive coordinator at kristina.gaddy@theregoesmyhero.orgThere Goes My Hero is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping leukemia patients and their families. Please visit for more information or to make a donation.
