It has been less than 2 weeks since we got the news that my brother Andrew (Drew) was diagnosed with Leukemia. Very difficult news to hear about a family member but staying positive is so important in situations like this. When I broke the news about the diagnoses I heard from a listener about the 'Be The Match' Registry. It was started to connect patients searching for a cure and life-saving bone marrow donors.

I didn't realize that every 3 minutes, one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer. That's why it is so important to sign up and help save the life of those going through this very difficult disease.

If you want to sign up for the 'Be The Match' Bone Marrow Registry please click here. Just know that when you sign up you are giving hope to lots of families you may never even meet, but sometimes hope is all anyone ever needs.
