An awareness event and concert fundraiser to help Janet and other blood cancer patients find their life-saving marrow match. Every year, 10,000 patients are in need of bone marrow transplants to help them beat blood cancers. Finding a match can be very difficult, especially for minorities. Only 2% of the U.S. population is registered as potential donors, while Asians make up only 7% of the national registry.
We will be highlighting the brave stories of blood cancer patients, celebrating community organizations, including Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M), and hosting a live bone marrow drive throughout the night (just takes a few cheek swabs to join!).
We hope to not only raise money for Janet and A3M, but most importantly, inform and inspire others to spread awareness and support this cause so that Janet and all patients in need can find their perfect 10/10 marrow matches.
