Be The Match Drive

Saturday, August 20th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Bethel Christian Academy

8455 Savage Guilford Road, Savage, MD 20763

Please take this opportunity to join the Be The Match Registry. By becoming a member of the Registry, you could be a match for a patient in critical need like Kara—maybe even the only person who could save a patient’s life.

Cure for Kara
If you want to organize a donor drive in your hometown to help Kara and others, we will help you! email
On May 16, 2011, a biopsy of a nasal cavity tumor revealed that Kara had a rare form of lymphoma NKT – a white blood cell killer. Unfortunately, surgical removal of the tumor is not a viable option and her best chance for survival is a bone marrow transplant. Kara's little sister is not a match.


Bone marrow donor drive for a young friend of mine.

Friday, August 05, 2011

This young lady is a friend of mine.She has been though alot in just a short amount of time. She just turned 19 on Sunday. If you ever thought about donating, please get swabbed. Her goal is to find a match but she also wants her story out there ,she wants to get as many peopled swabbed, so if not for her for others like her, her drive is national. I wish I could post her picture but it is not letting me. thank you for reading.

Cure for Kara
We Urge You to “Get Swabbed“ as 18-year old Kara of Military Parents is Desperately Fighting to Win Battle Over Blood Cancer Can you imagine serving in Afghanistan, thousands of miles away from your family, and finding out that the apple of your eye, ...your daughter, has been diagnosed with a deadly blood cancer? That’s what one military father and mother are experiencing. They have put their lives on the line, but are now faced with the crippling fear of losing their 18-year-old daughter, Kara, to a deadly form of blood cancer. On May 16, 2011, a biopsy of a nasal cavity tumor revealed that Kara had a rare form of lymphoma NKT – a white blood cell killer. Unfortunately, surgical removal of the tumor is not a viable option and her best chance for survival is a bone marrow transplant. Kara's little sister is not a match, and currently, there is no donor on the registry who can save Kara's life. Kara's parents, Nathan and Rosie, each served two tours of duty in Iraq and another in Afghanistan. They are our heroes and now we have a chance to be heroes for Kara, her family and the many others experiencing similar situations. But we need you! Every day thousands of patients search the Be The Match Registry looking for a bone marrow donor match, but only 4 out of 10 patients are lucky enough to receive a transplant.

2 months off the scale

Sunday, March 13, 2011

It will be two months( this Friday) since I stepped on a scale, Why. I am not scared of the scale, It just was not moving. I was doing everything I could but it was not moving, so I stepped back from the scale and looked to other things to tell me I am doing well. Today I put on a size 8 dress pants for church and they fit! My goal size is 10!!! So take that scale I don't need you! Friday is my birthday so I might just have to see if that scale moved, but I know if it hasn't I am still doing well!

The moment you get that call

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Saturday started just fine, I walked the dog , I shopped for groceries and I had time to clean the house. Then the phone rang- I have your daughter and I am taking her to the hospital- the rest of the family has been flown to a trauma center in PA. I fell to the floor.We were waiting for the kids and grandkids to arrive from Ohio, now I am told they crashed on Interstate 70. All I could do is pray. We dropped everything and got to the hospital as fast as we could. All the way praying! Granddaughter is 18 month- When I saw her she was not crying just stared off into space she was in shock-bruises is all the little one had( Thank God for car seat!) Grandson is almost 3-has 2 fractured ribs and stitches( thank God for car seats!)Son in law - only cuts from flying glass. My daughter was pinned in the car, they used the jaws of life to get her out. She got the worst of the accident. She will heal! We have them all still with us! To look at the car it is amazing it was not worst.
I want to thank the two men who stopped to help before the police arrived, I know they are not on here, but I have to tell someone about them. The first stopped he did not know what to do so he did what he could he prayed for them. The second was a fedex driver that was also a EMT- he was able to break the windows and get my grandkids out of the car. I heard he helped keep my grandson clam while they waited for the flight to take him to the hospital. Where ever you wonderful people are may you be blessed! Thank you for stopping and helping!

    i am happy all is well and were helped. i can never understand why people wont stop to help no matter how many people are all ready there. you never know what you can do your self. i was in the same sitituation i was driving down the road with my wife and son and a over turned car on its roof. i jumped out ran over and asked if anybody called 911 or was going to help. they all looked at me like i was crazy. the back dook was open i jumped in cut the seat belts loose and got them out. trust me a big fat guy it was not easy!
when they got out we got them on there backs as police were arriving i did not wait i just got in and left.
i never want a thank you i just want some one to return the favor to some one other.

  Thank heavens that everyone made it. How distraught this must have made you. I will pray for your family's full recovery. It's so true that we need to cherish our lives and live every single day like it's a blessing.
