Reaching out to a Community of Support

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for my Bone Marrow Transplant.  All donations are tax deductible with 100% of donations going to pay for transplant expenses.

In March 2016, I was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia called Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or ALL.  ALL is a blood cancer that kills off the bone marrow and the immune system. I underwent 6 months of chemotherapy and I am in remission.  

Unfortunately, ALL is an aggressive cancer and the survival rate with chemotherapy alone is not very good.  I need a Bone Marrow Transplant to beat this cancer. The good news is that I am in remission. I have a transplant donor and, on January 2nd, I  started transplant therapy

The bad news is that Cancer is ridiculously expensive to treat and I need your help to pay for expenses associated with the Transplant. These include: co-pays, medications, transportation and full time caregiver support during the three-month stay at City of Hope Transplant Center.

Please help by giving whatever amount you can. All donations add up fast and your help makes a difference. The DONATE tab is located on the top of this page.

Again, donations are tax deductible and you may qualify for employer matching funds grants by using “the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation” with Tax Id: 133674198

A Bone Marrow Transplant is the cancer patient’s ultimate wish. It is a chance to CURE my cancer and get a rare and beautiful second chance at life. Transplant patients often live out the rest of their lives without the cancer coming back. No more living in fear, endless trips to hospital and follow up treatments. It’s the dream treatment. A chance for a CURE!!

By donating, you are giving me the ultimate gift. A second chance at life and for that I’m forever grateful.

With awe and gratitude,
Marc Brody
