Review for Gift of Life Marrow Registry, Boca Raton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over 25 years ago, I read of the plight of Jay Feinberg, a young man with leukemia who desperately needed to find a bone marrow donor who could save his life. At that time I coordinated two donor drives in Orange County and Westchester County. Throughout the years, I have maintained a connection to Jay, after his life was saved by an anonymous donor, and he had established Gift of Life Marrow Registry with his parents. When I bought a home in South Florida and realized that the Gift of Life National Headquarters was minutes from my home, I called to volunteer. I eventually established the Valencia Palms Gift of Life Club, and co-chaired the 2017 Steps for Life 5k and the 1st and 2nd Annual Gift of Life Pickleball Tournaments. Raising need funds to help Gift of Life fulfill their mission in saving lives, and coordinating swabbing drives to find potential donors, has become my passion. It is an incredible organization which works diligently to bring donors and recipients together . Together we save lives...
