Words can’t express how amazing this story is. Pictured here is Adam Genet, a great friend and long time supporter of our organization. Adam previously had his bone marrow tested, and as it turns out, became a match for a leukemia patient out there who needs Adam’s cells to survive. Well, today Adam donated his bone marrow to help save the life of that leukemia patient. But July 17th just isn’t any day. Every year on July 17th, Adam always donates his blood in honor of Eric McLean, whom LIFE was founded in honor of. Today, Eric would’ve been 33 years old. As many of you may vividly remember, Eric died from leukemia nearly 5 years ago. L.I.F.E. – Leukemia Ironman Fundraiser for Eric, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was organized to help fulfill Eric’s greatest mission in life to help other people affected by cancer, and encourage as many people to join the bone marrow registry as possible. In this youtube video, Eric talks about exactly that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9xERB2ubus, Please consider ordering your kit to have your marrow tested from https://bethematch.org/, and perhaps one day you, too can help save someone’s life like Adam here is doing. And Adam, thank you for being the amazing friend and hero that you are. Keep on keepin’ on!!
Below are Adam’s own words:
