The Today Show featured one of our donor's from Rhode Island!

She recently met her recipient, 7-year-old Zeke. What a beautiful story. Thank you Jennifer!

Norwalk community shows up to help father in need of a bone marrow, stem cell match

Tony has never been the type of guy to back down from a fight, especially if cancer is the one trying to knock him down. After conquering B-Cell Lymphoma with 2 different types of cell transplants, he has now been diagnosed with MDS due to all of the chemo he had to endure. He is not giving up because he wants to be there for his 13 year old daughter Bella.

Tony is in need of someone else’s help to fight this cancer battle – and that person could be you! If you are between the ages of 18 and 40, in good health and have ever wanted to help save someone’s life, please go to my.bethematch.org/BeatItForBella and consider joining the Be The Match registry. You could help save the life of Tony or someone else searching for their cure!

We can't get enough of this amazing little boy! Mikey is 2 years post transplant and doing great!

Thank you to his incredibly strong and caring momma, Jeanette Mollis, who continues to support Be The Match through her business, Herbs and Mylk.

For those of you who don’t know how Herbs and Mylk started-

My son was born without an immune system and had a Bone Marrow Transplant at 6 months old. We found out at a week old and we’re in strict isolation until a year post transplant. Mikey had 7 days of intense chemotherapy, ended up in ICU and then recovered like a champ. After we were confident the transplant took we were able to come home and continue our journey to full recovery. I wanted to keep him as clean and healthy as possible without all the crap chemicals that are in so many store bought products. So, I learned how to make our own! And here we are. With our heathy beautiful thriving little warrior and a business that allows me to bring health to all of those around me. Today is 2 years post transplant for the light of my life. His second chance at life.

HAPPY LIFE DAY TO MY BRAVE, STRONG, SWEET & SILLY BEAUTIFUL BOY!!!

I could cry every time I look at you and every-time I think about how far you’ve come.

You never fail to amaze me and make me feel like the luckiest mother in the world. I am so so proud of you each and every minute or everyday.

You are the absolute light of my life and I have never been so grateful. I love you Mikey💙

Squeezing you so extra tight tonight.

Also, every month we donate a percentage of sales to either Boston children’s, @bethematchne, IDF & Boston House!

This months donations go to Boston Children’s BMT unit where Mikey had his transplant!

Love to you all♥️
