Gift of Life has changed many, many lives for the better - including my own. I had the honor of donating my bone marrow to a 4 year-old boy suffering from leukemia. Today, he is a 12 years old and completely cancer-free. We see each other often and I have seen him grow up into an extraordinary young man. In the meantime, I have seen countless other similar stories. I am proud to be a member of the Gift of Life family and wish others could experience the same feeling.

I was a courier for Gift of Life and did extensive travel delivering marrow. I saw the way that the Gift of Life staff worked with the donors and the amount of time they put in to make sure the product transfer was done correctly. I saw firsthand how the staff at Gift of Life made sure the donors were accommodated for all their needs and that the end result hopefully would be a positive reaction to what I was delivering. I think that anyone requiring the services of Gift of Life would be more than happy with the staff the service and the way they accommodate everyone to ensure a smooth experience.

This Foundation changed my life. It is often understated the tangible benefits for not only the transplant Recipient, but the Donor as well. Yes, my Recipient, a 62-year-old woman from Chicago, was given a second chance at life. She is cancer free and happier than ever.

As the donor, I found meaning in passion in my young life. I had the absolutely incredible opportunity to donate just after my 19th birthday. I was a businesses student studying Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises at Syracuse University. It's not that I was directionless or unmotivated; having the opportunity to give this gift made me see through to what is important in life and the power of altruism.

Thank you, Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation, for giving me the opportunity to provide such a wonderful Gift.

I have never seen a company that works as hard as each person here. From the moment you enter the building, you can literally feel the love. This company takes pride in what they do. Its not just a 9-5 for them. Every one is compassionate and doesnt stop until the job is done. Every where you turn, there is always a smiling face. I am beyond honored and delighted to work here.
