Two Special Guests
Felipe recently raised over $11K to support the life-saving efforts of the Icla da Silva Foundation. His fundraiser was created in honor of his mother. She recently received her bone marrow transplant after a 10-year battle with chronic myeloid leukemia.
Please join us in recognizing his efforts to pay it forward and help patients in need of a bone marrow transplant.
Carlos first volunteered and then worked with the Icla da Silva Foundation for over 16 years. He spearheaded many efforts across the country, saving the lives of patients who needed a bone marrow transplant.
Please join us in honoring Carlos for his dedication and support. He is still a valued member of our team, continuing to volunteer his time as a brand ambassador for our efforts in southern Florida.
#About Icla da Silva
The Icla da Silva Foundation was established in 1992, in memory of a 13-year-old Brazilian girl named Icla da Silva.
After two years of fighting leukemia, Icla passed away in New York City, where she came hoping to get her life-saving treatment: a bone marrow transplant.
A matching donor was never found.
After she passed, a note was found from Icla to her mom. She insisted that she was fine…and asked her family to help the friends she had made while waiting for a matching donor.
Twelve months after her passing, the Icla da Silva Foundation was formed to help patients in need of a bone marrow or cord blood transplant.
