2022 Gala Impact

While a blood stem cell transplant can provide a second chance at life for thousands of patients each year, the financial toll can prevent some patients from moving forward with treatment. Many families find their insurance doesn’t cover all the costs associated with transplant, such as travel and lodging when the transplant center is far from home, lost wages, and more. Financial costs continue to be the #1 burden or barrier reported by patients who come to us needing a transplant.*  But with your support, we can provide hope for patients—hope that they will not only find a match, but also have the access to receive the transplant they need. 

 

*Based on patient/caregiver-reported data from October 2021 – September 2022.

2023 Honorary Chairs

The Furlong Family

Riley Furlong was just 8 years old when she was diagnosed with leukemia. In May 2018, Riley found her donor match and received her bone marrow transplant. Riley’s transplant was a success—and her life was saved. Today she is 14 years old and is doing great.

 

“Every day Riley has—and every day we have with Riley—is a gift,” said Bill, Riley’s father. “It’s hard to look at yourself as ‘lucky’ when your kid gets cancer, but we now know how fortunate we were. We found Riley’s match.”

 

Ever since experiencing the impact of our life-saving mission firsthand, the Furlong family has been dedicated Be The Match supporters. We are honored to have them join us as our 2023 Be The Match Gala Honorary Chairs. Learn more about their story.
