ROC'N WEDNESDAY! Be The Match at Juneteenth Freedom Festival at Tappen Park


Roc-A-Natural Cultural Foundation Inc, Friends Who Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Organization, Jason Price and Shaolin Ryders are super excited to welcome Be The Match as a Silver Sponsor at the Juneteenth Freedom Festival at Tappen Park!


Thank you Be The Match for your generous sponsorship and recognizing the importance of educating the community about Blood Cancer and signing up people to join the National Bone Marrow Registry, 500 N 5th St, New York, NY, Website: https://bethematch.org/!


"We are super excited to be participating on behalf of Janine Sawyers and educating our community on how they can potentially save a life!" Said Lizzie Hernandez


These are two ways someone can join the Be The Match registry on behalf of Janine.


2. Text “JanineStrong” To 61474


Ms. Sawyers is the recipient of an Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant in September 2022.  She is advocating to recruit stem cell/bone marrow donars with Be The Match in the hopes of increasing and diversifying the national bone marrow registry within Black and Brown communities. Currently, they  only have a 29% chance of finding a life-saving donor.  Ms. Sawyers hopes that this Juneteenth outreach and educational offering at the Juneteenth Freedom Festival at Tappen Park will expand those efforts to increase the registry.

Be sure to stop by Be The Match table at the Juneteenth Freedom Festival at Tappen Park and join the National Bone Marrow Registry.  


Save a life and be the Bone Marrow Donor match for someone like Janine Sawyers, a transplant recipient.
