Anthony's Journey

Anthony Daniels didn't know how much strength he had until being strong was the only option.

In 2011, Anthony was attending Fordham University and playing collegiate ice hockey when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Anthony fought the cancer into remission twice over the next two years – all while continuing his studies.

In 2013, when his cancer returned for the third time, Anthony learned that his best hope for survival was a bone marrow transplant. No matching donor was found in his family or on the bone marrow registry. While searching for a match, Anthony began training as a boxer as a way to motivate himself, focusing on getting strong and competing in the ring. “It really helped me emotionally, physically and mentally,” Anthony explained.

Sometimes he headed straight to the gym from his chemotherapy treatments. "It was really hard but afterwards, I'd be tougher,” he said. “I was able to deal with the nausea.” Anthony fought his cancer in and out of the ring to help himself and inspire other patients to never give up.

I made a choice, a choice that has changed my life, I chose to be strong.

Recently, Anthony learned that his lymphoma has spread. He is exploring a treatment option that will help build his immunity so that in the next 6-12 months, he will be strong enough for a transplant.

But a matching donor must be found in order for him to survive past 12 months.

Despite this setback, Anthony is more determined than ever to keep fighting. His mission is to raise awareness and to register as many new potential donors as he can to help find a match that could give him – and others patients like him – a second chance at life.

I want to sign up for Anthony!

In a very special way to say #ThankYouDonor for World Marrow Donor Day, our CEO John Spinnato visited with Dale who donated blood stem cells to a patient waiting for a lifesaving transplant. 👏👏👏
.
“It was an incredible experience to directly thank someone who is doing so much to give a perfect stranger a second chance at a healthy life. It’s something I will never forget. Thank you, Dale! And thank you to his family for supporting him along the way.”

Donors like Corie bring hope to patients worldwide ❤️ . She signed up to be a #bonemarrowdonor at @slu_official eight years ago.  Earlier this year she stepped up and donated to a patient in need of a transplant and honor the memory of her father in law who lost his battle to leukemia.

Nine-year-old Emma had to give up the activities that she loves so much when she was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. This condition causes her body to stop producing new blood cells. She's often exhausted and now at increased risk for infections and uncontrolled bleeding. The cure is a bone marrow transplant.

Emma's adopted and there are no immediate bone marrow matches in her family. She must rely on a stranger to step up and register. Due to the lack of diversity on the national registry, it will be even harder for Emma to find a match. Will you step up for Emma?
Our friends at the @runproject hosted the #TooHotToHandle race 🏃‍♀️ 🏃‍♂️ in Dallas over the weekend. Over 2,500 racers participated and proceeds from the half marathon went towards the fight against blood cancer.
Arm in arm like brothers and face-to-face for the first time, Steven (left) and @joshwildhorn (right) shared a special moment at the @ABC7NY studios.

In February of 2017, Steven answered the call to save a young man in Seattle who was fighting leukemia. He donated his stem cells and today, Josh continues to rock out with his heavy metal band @designerdisguise.

Look who we found outside the @abc7ny studios! @kellyripa! She wants you to come down to the ABC Studios and #swabyourcheeks to become a registered #bonemarrowdonor. We agree! Thanks for your support, Kelly!
