Cause' when push        
        comes to shove
You taste what        
        you're made of.
You might bend,        
        till you break
Cause its all        
        you can take.
On your knees        
        you look up,
Decide you've        
        had enough.
You get mad,        
        you get strong,
Wipe your hands        
        shake it off,
THEN YOU STAND.
 
BONE MARROW DRIVES & DONATIONS

This Foundation is determined to assist in bringing patients to their life-saving donors in any way possible. Due to our efforts, our partnership with the National Marrow Donor Program, and several of you will willing to help, Jacquie For A.L.L. sponsored bone marrow drives have added over 1,200 people to the Be The Match Registry in honor of Jacquie!! These individuals have the potential to directly save a life when called.
 
Because of these efforts on behalf of Jacquie, several registrants have already recieved calls from the National Marrow Donor Program informing them that they are a potential match for a patient/recipiant. Pending further testing, these invividuals may be the donor that saves the life of a cancer or Leukemia patient!
