Our season is coming to an end, and I would like to reach out to our NBYL family. Catherine Holm, wife of Mark Holm, a long time member and supporter of the NBYL, needs our help. Please read the attached flyers and note from Mark and help out, not only Catherine, but all the families that might be going through the same thing. Thank you in advance, hope to see you there.
From Mark –
Hi Ken, I was hoping thru the NBYL, you might be able to help us. My wife has been diagnosed with A.L.L., an aggressive Leukemia which requires a bone marrow transplant. My family is holding an event on June 11th along with the BeTheMatch.org foundation to help find donors not only for my family but the thousands of other families that are going thru the same thing. It is a simple procedure, they just swab your cheek. Also people don’t realize that being a donor is no longer an invasive or painful process now, it’s just like donating blood or platelets but just takes a few hours longer. There will be a free raffle of an iPad and some local gift cards. The only donations we are looking for is Marrow, not money. I will send you some links so you can see what has been going on. if you can help spread the word we would really appreciate it, if not I understand.
Thanks, Mark Holm
