Bone Marrow Registry to Launch Groundbreaking Fundraising Technology to Overcome Madoff Crisis

Out of adversity comes opportunity.” Benjamin Franklin’s significant words uttered more than 250 years ago ring true for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation today.

New York, NY (Vocus) May 5, 2009 -– “Out of adversity comes opportunity.” Benjamin Franklin’s significant words uttered more than 250 years ago ring true for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation today. The international bone marrow registry has been the subject of news reports since it announced a substantial loss of support in the wake of the Madoff scandal.

On the evening of May 14, 2009, Gift of Life will unveil its public response to the overall economic crisis: a groundbreaking technological initiative that will fuel the testing of 150,000 new bone marrow donors. The announcement will be made at a major New York fundraiser to be held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel.

The kickoff will feature three New York area bone marrow donors who will meet their grateful transplant recipients on stage for the very first time. Warren Eisenberg, Chairman and Co-Founder of Bed Bath and Beyond, and one of the newest members to join the Gift of Life Board of Directors said, “I am involved in many good charities, but only one where I actually can see the people whose lives we’ve saved, and that’s Gift of Life.”

Over 500 invited guests will stand in solidarity with Gift of Life on May 14, including over 100 bone marrow donors and transplant survivors. Honored guests include Steve Geller, Co-Founder and Chairman of MDVIP, a national preventative and personalized healthcare company serving over 100,000 people in 30 states. Len Berman, recently retired legendary New York NBC-TV sports anchor, will serve as the event’s Master of Ceremonies.

The Partners for Life Gala is Gift of Life’s largest fundraising event of the year but additionally, one of the largest gatherings of donors and recipients in the world. Members of the media are invited to attend. All participants will be available for photos and interviews following their introductions.

The Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation ranks among the top international registries facilitating bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants for children and adults suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Gift of Life’s vision is a match for anyone in need of a donor, whenever they may need one. No patient should die needlessly for lack of a donor.
