On February 22, 2020, the Icla da Silva Foundation brought our Mix & Match luncheon to Orlando, Florida for the first time.
The Mix & Match events bring together cancer survivors, current patients in search of a match, and donors who have saved lives with a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. Our guests share stories, make new friends and talk about ways to support our mission of saving lives.
We were honored to host 106 attendees in Orlando and we were grateful for the opportunity to recognize 23 marrow donors. These donors joined the registry and said “yes” when they received a call telling them that they matched a patient in need.
Every single one of them should be proud they had the faith and courage to save a life.
We will be showcasing “quotes” from some of the attendees on our social pages in the upcoming weeks.
Of course, we are also extremely thankful to Be The Match for providing their support and ensuring a successful luncheon.
We look forward to holding more Mix & Match events in a city near you.
