In 2004 Bill Pomeroy was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a blood cancer that takes more than 10,400 lives each year. Fortunately, Bill found a matched donor and received a transplant in 2005.
During his cancer journey, Bill learned about the urgent need to increase the ethnic diversity of the Be The Match Registry so more patients could find a match. He established The William G. Pomeroy Foundation to support the work of Be The Match®.
Since 2008, Bill’s foundation has helped register more than 20,000 potential donors, which have already produced 40 marrow matches.
Today, Bill is 11 years post-transplant, serves as a Be The Match board member, and has become good friends with the young man from Texas who donated his marrow to save his life.
