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!

Anya is a nine-year-old New Jersey native. Anya is just like any other fourth grade girl. She likes watching movies on Netflix, playing Minecraft, and doing arts and crafts.
But unlike other fourth grade girls, Anya is battling leukemia. She was first diagnosed in kindergarten and went into remission in third grade. During this school year, Anya learned that her leukemia had returned. The doctors believe her best chance for a full recovery is a bone marrow transplant. Despite her own battle, Anya has found a way to give back to other girls with cancer. During her second week at the hospital, Anya donated her hair to help other kids with cancer.

Cory is a 40-year-old Arkansas native. He works as utility buyer and is a Deacon at St. Mark Baptist Church. 
Two months ago, Cory learned that he had aplastic anemia. Doctors quickly decided that he would need a bone marrow transplant to have a shot at full recovery. Cory’s brother was tested and sadly was not a match. Now they are turning to the national registry and their community for help.

Cory’s church recently hosted a drive in his honor to add more people to the registry. “Some people may not understand why this has happened to me, but I understand that this is my mission. I know that I have been put here by God for this purpose. There is no reason that many people can't find a matching donor, we can do something to change that,” says Cory.
