The Katelyn Bedard Bone Marrow Association was founded in July 2005 by Bryan and Joanne Bedard of Windsor, Ontario in Canada. Bryan and Joanne were inspired to start this association after losing their daughter Katelyn to Leukemia at the age of 3, when she was not able to find a bone marrow donor.
The mission of the Katelyn Bedard Bone Marrow Association is to promote awareness about worldwide bone marrow registries, to educate on bone marrow donation, to bring attention to the pressing need for bone marrow donors and to encourage all adults to consider joining the registry. We also aim to provide support to families that have a family member in need of a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.
You can make a donation to the Katelyn Bedard Bone Marrow Association online through the PayPal service. *** As a registered Canadian charity we are happy to provide a Canadian charitable donation tax receipt.
