My name is Kim Roper and I need your help.
I have cancer. Neither radiation therapy nor chemotherapy has controlled my Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. I now need a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, there currently is no bone marrow match for me in the national registry.
I have no siblings and am dependent on the national registry to find a donor match.It is easy to see if you are a potential match for me or for any one of the hundreds of people who need a life-saving bone marrow transplant. All it takes is a few minutes of your time and a cotton swab.
You have the power to save a life. Take the test. Spread the word.
How to Join the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP)
Like most of you, I had no idea that people with cancer depend on the national registry to find a bone marrow match to save their life. I also had no idea how easy it was to get tested and that all it takes is a cotton swab. You might not end up being a match for me, but by registering and getting tested, you might someday save the life of someone else.
Take the test. Ask your family and friends to take the test. You can make a difference. Thank you.

Match4Kim Puts Up Big Numbers During First 30 Days - Nov 15, 2012
On October 15, 2012, the Match4Kim cause was launched and match4kim.com was created. At that time, we had no new donors registered. In just 30 short days, the Match4Kim team has added 2,686 new members to the National Registry!
This has been a team effort in the truest sense of the word. Over 15,000 different visitors logged on to the Match4Kim website in the past 30 days and we have generated 901 online registrants. Additionally, through donor drives conducted at the Columbus Marathon, Mettler Toledo, The Nourse Family of Dealerships, Ohio State University, Perry Township/Worthington Hills, North Carolina University, Penn State University, American Health Holdings and Miami University, we have registered 1,785 new donors at these nine drives.
Thank you so much to every single person who registered and to every single person who helped our cause in any way. We are making a difference and we will continue our mission to find a match for Kim and for all the others who are waiting on a life-saving bone marrow match.
