Kim McGrath Finds a match-Jeremy McGrath announced,
that thanks in great part to the efforts of Be The Match and its Registry, his wife Kim has found a marrow donor.
Surviving breast cancer two years ago, in May of this year, Kim McGrath was diagnosed with Leukemia.
Her treatment - immediate chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.
Quickly, Jeremy and Kim moved into action: Kim -- undergoing chemo and enduring month long hospital stays and Jeremy - spearheading close to 40 marrow drives and fundraisers.
Results -- More than 4,000 people tested for possible inclusion within the Registry and more than a quarter of a million dollars raised.
As Kim rests at home in preparation for her marrow transplant, within the next few days, Jeremy had this to add, "First, thank you again to everyone who has helped, donated, gotten tested and sent well
wishes to our family. Your responses to my initial call to action have been incredible and the support and love just seems to continue. The fact that Kim found a match is really great news for us! But it is our hope that people will still get tested and join the Be The match registry.
