Huge thank you to the Rockford University baseball team for teaming up with K Cancer Baseball for a “Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry” drive at their Aviator Stadium game this past Friday night!

The weather was awful but that didn’t stop things. The team heard about the mission of the “Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry” and was more than happy to get involved. Kim signing folks up at the RC Game

The Registry types a persons bone marrow and adds their information to a database. When a person suffering from a blood cancer needs a bone marrow transplant, the registry is checked for a match. 1 out of 540 people on the registry are contacted to provide a bone marrow transplant that is the hope needed to save a life. Who knows, one of the players who signed up on the registry at last nights event might be called and given the chance to be someones hero!

The team came by to say high to K Cancer Baseballs favorite fan, Samantha Roberson!
