Every four minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia, yet only half receive the treatment they need. It can happen to anyone, at any time. But there is a cure, a marrow transplant. That’s why Phiten has partnered with Be The Match, a nonprofit organization that helps save the lives of people with blood cancer. The Phiten Help Be The Match Eliminate Blood Cancer program and the sale of the limited edition Tornado necklace will raise money to support the mission that every person who needs a bone marrow transplant receives one.
Be The Match receives high rankings according to Charity Navigator. Be The Match puts 75.8% of its funding into programs to help those with blood cancer.
Not only can you help Be The Match through purchasing these items from Phiten, which has excellent athletic products, but you can also donate directly to be the match. More importantly, you can be tested to see if you’re a bone marrow match and become a donor. Finally, you can donate your baby’s cord blood.
I really want to talk with you about cord blood donation. Donating cord blood doesn’t change your pregnancy or delivery. All you need to do is volunteer, be screened, and the cord blood is collected from the hospital to treat diseases. Nearly 80% of diseases can use the stem cell rich cord blood that would otherwise be thrown away. Check out this quick survey to learn a little more. http://bethematch.org/Support-the-Cause/Donate-cord-blood/Learn-if-you-can-donate-cord-blood/
I’m so glad Phiten is working to raise awareness for Be The Match and that we can be part of it. The bracelets and necklaces are super cool, and you can feel good knowing you’re helping to fund a great charity and raise awareness when you wear and give the limited edition Tornado necklace.
You can purchase a limited edition Tornado necklaces for $35 exclusively at www.PhitenUSA.com/BeTheMatch. With the purchase of this necklace, 25% of net sales support the Be The Match mission to save lives through marrow transplants.
