So many of you have asked how you can help besides just showing us your support through prayers, which is more than enough!  But if you would like to do something different, below are some ways you can help:

Be the Match

It is not the painful procedure like most people think it is.  Please consider registering to be a bone marrow donor and you can be the one to save a life.  Please click the link below to take the first step in becoming a bone marrow donor.

www.marrow.org

If you are unable to sign up to be a bone marrow donor but would still like to help, please consider joining "Be the One Run."  Your generous contributions will help cover the cost of about $100 to add each new member to the "Be the Match Registry."  Your tax-deductible gift allows more people to join the registry, giving more patients hope for a cure.  Please give what you can.

Donate Blood

There is no substitute for blood.  It has to come from one person in order to give to another.  A regular number of voluntary donations is required every day to meet the need for blood.
 
For Ryan, replenishment blood was needed due to his ongoing chemotherapy treatments.  Please consider donating blood or platelets to help other cancer patients by clicking the link below:

Commit for Life

Or you can host a blood drive.  The Commit for Life Group Program is a partnership between GCRBC and organizations in the Texas Gulf Coast region focused on permanently increasing the blood supply.  If you or your organization is interested in hosting a blood drive, please contact Mike Norman or click on the link below:

If you are interested, you can donate directly to Ryan's medical and educational fund account.   The money will only be use for Ryan's medical  and educational expenses.  Although Ryan has been cancer free for 6 years, the side effects from his treatment continues along with trying to get caught up in school.  Please use the button below to make a gift of money.  It is secure, free, and easy.  Click on the "Donate" button below and it will transfer you to PayPal's safe and secure web sit to enter your personal information.
