One of the main reasons we started Behind the Scenes NYC was to work with the local community, make a difference and help those that need of our support.
I met Be The Match (@BeTheMatch) and an event in town last year, and immediately joined their program by filling out a form and getting a “saliva sample”, to become a donor - totally painless.
“For thousands of patients with a blood cancer like leukemia or other blood disease like sickle cell anemia, a marrow or umbilical cord transplant is their only life-saving treatment - their only chance for a cure. Yet, most have no matching marrow donor in their family."
If you are between the age of 18 and 44, these folks need you! Moms and future moms…did you know that your baby’s umbilical cord can save lives!?
They also have great Volunteer programs, for those interested in donating time, which is one of our most precious assets today!
Lets help make a difference in this world that seams to have become as it’s crazy as it can get!
