Noah was born the morning of February 26, 2017. He was about 3 weeks early, and other than being a little jaundice and having enlarged tooth buds on his gums, the pregnancy and delivery were pretty routine. At about 3.5 months old, baby Noah was diagnosed with a rare genetic bone disease called Osteopetrosis – a condition that can be fatal if not treated with a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.
Thanks to Be The Match, a “perfect match” donor was found and at just 5 months old, Noah received his life-saving transplant.
Others like Noah are in desperate need of a transplant. Could you be the match that saves their life?
