Hendrick Marrow Program Started by Pompano Beach Honda Owner
The owner of Hendrick Honda Pompano Beach, a respectable Pompano Beach Honda dealer, started the Hendrick Marrow Program in 1997. Its purpose is to provide money and donors to those in need of a match.
Rick Hendrick did not actually need a transplant himself, but he wanted to help those who were waiting to find a match and get a second chance at life like everyone deserves. The Hendrick Marrow program works together with the Be The Match Foundation, and together they help support the National Marrow Donor Program.
Everyone Deserves the Chance to Live
The National Marrow Donor program is a nonprofit organization that operates Be The Match, which helps those in need of bone marrow or umbilical cord transplants find a suitable donor and get they medical care necessary. Over the past 25 years they have helped contribute to advancements in medicine that has saved so many lives.
The Hendrick Marrow program not only raises money in hopes that they can find more potential donors, it also helps patients pay for transplant costs that are unfortunately not covered by insurance. Being unable to pay is one of the main reasons why some patients can’t get the treatment they need.
Since its inception, the Hendrick Marrow Program has helped raise more than $12 million, it has added more than 100,000 members to the Be The Match Registry and it has completely paid the cost of the medical bill for more than 8,000 patients thanks to grants like the Hendrick Family Fund for Patient Assistance.
If you’re a Pompano Beach Honda fan that would like to contribute to the Hendrick Marrow Program, you can easily go online and donate, and remember that no amount is ever too small. If you donate before August 31, the Hendrick Marrow Program will generously match you contribution, helping to double the odds of a patient finding their match.
