to raise awareness, ignite the hopes of patients in need, and help grow the BeTheMatch.org registry.

These efforts can help save the life of Deputy Aguirre and any patient in need of a bone marrow transplant.

Once an individual is registered, they will become part of every patient’s search for a matching marrow donor.

"Together we can all make a difference in someone’s life," said organizers.
