According to the Marrow Match every 10 minutes someone dies from a blood cancer – 144 people a day – more than six people an hour. Over 10,000 patients a year need a marrow transplant. Only half receive one.

The real MARROW CRISIS is not that patients cannot find their match – it is that their match is not on the registry! The cure for many of these patients is literally in you. By helping Marrow Match raise awareness and grow the registry, you are taking the steps with us to truly eradicate this problem.
The cure for many of these patients is literally in you!
We believe that it is unacceptable that a person in need of a marrow transplant will die because their match was not on the registry.
Marrow Match is committed to raising awareness about the realities of marrow donation in order to grow the registry with viable, educated and dedicated donors.
Cox’s commitment this year to raising awareness has lead him to start the Great Amarrowcan Race. Jason tells us that: “We are going to run 12 marathons in 12 cities in 12 months. We are going to blaze a marrow match trail across Amarrowca igniting people to find it within their hearts to give what’s in their bones to save lives.
You learn in “Our Story” on Dane Boyle Fitness website you know we have experience and a deep understanding of Acute Myeloid Leukemia, just one of many types of disease that can be treated with a bone marrow transplant. It has deeply touched the DB Fitness family and helped fuel the fire of our very existence. The healthy revolution is dedicated to helping humans find their health and fitness to live their dreams and live the gift inside each of them.
We are in the beginning stages of planning to assist Jason in his dream and furthering our own dreams. We will be continually covering Jason as he runs all across this land and brings his dream home to San Antonio this December in the Rock and Roll San Antonio race. We will keep you updated on the numbers of folks added to the registry and all the amazing stories of how we will be changing lives.
Like so many efforts of this kind Jason and Marrow Match is operating on a shoestring budget and the prayers of his heart to awaken a Nation. Depending on donations and volunteers to make miracles happen to Ignite Life for others. For now here is how you can help.
