Bone marrow failure diseases threaten 50 people every day, every age, gender and ethnicity.
That’s why we partner with Be the Match and Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches!
Take it from Ruth Cuadra, our 2020 Champion:
In 1996, Ruth had a general physical that revealed very low blood counts. She had been bruising and feeling tired, and the problem turned out to be very serious with a diagnosis of aplastic anemia (AA), a rare disease in which the bone marrow can’t make sufficient blood cells. Her red blood cell, white blood cell, and platelet counts were all way below normal. Treatment for AA produced little improvement, and Ruth’s bone marrow exams revealed abnormal chromosomes. By 1998, her diagnosis changed to myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and her only treatment choice was a bone marrow transplant.
Fortunately, Be the Match found a matched donor in the national registry and after 44 days in the hospital and a year of recovery, Ruth was cured. This year she celebrates the 21st anniversary of her transplant and continues to help the AAMDS Foundation, local patients, and, as a Founding Member, March for Marrow Los Angeles!
please join us in 2020 as we run & walk to find a cure for bone marrow failure diseases
