HELP ME TAKE DOWN BLOOD CANCER IN THE NYC TRIATHLON
Hello! My name is Hashi, and recently I have come to learn about the devastating effects that blood cancers and diseases have on individuals and families. But through bone marrow transplants, people's lives can be saved and families made whole again.
All of the money raised through this and all fundraising efforts go toward saving lives. DKMS covers the costs for volunteer bone marrow donors to travel to their collection sites, a companion to ensure their comfort, and helps reimburse donors for lost wages, just to encourage more people to donate bone marrow... and life. Help me and Team DKMS raise money and awareness for this worthy cause through the New York City Triathlon on July 16th!
Did you know...
Every 3 minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with blood cancer like leukemia or lymphoma. For many, a bone marrow transplant is the only hope to survive.
Every 10 minutes, someone in the U.S dies from a blood cancer. Many people lose their fight because they cannot find a matching bone marrow donor.
I want to fight back to help more patients find their lifesaving match. On July 16, 2017 I’m racing in the New York City Triathlon and committing to raising $2,000 to benefit DKMS.
100% of every dollar I raise will go directly to registering potential new bone marrow donors who may be the cure for a patient in need.
