THANK YOU for your Support!

Hadley Mercer, a baby who was battling acute myeloid leukemia (AML), is one of the supported charities included on the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation website. Now almost two, Hadley is alive because of her selfless marrow donor. Her family is incredibly grateful for the support and awareness Jennifer and the foundation helped create, and they are now working to raise awareness for others.

This is why Hadley’s mother, Ashlie Mercer, will head to Washington, D.C., on March 3 to advocate on behalf of Be The Match®, the nonprofit that connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. Ashlie and her father will be in D.C. to urge continued federal support and funding for Be The Match. Continued federal support for Be The Match can mean the difference between life and death for many Americans with life-threatening blood and marrow cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, as well as other diseases.

Hadley Mercer is 8 months old and the happiest baby you’ll ever meet.  December 6, 2013, she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).  Due to chromosomal abnormalities and lack of response to traditional chemotherapy, Hadley needs a bone marrow transplant to save her life.  This little fighter is strong, and with a bone marrow transplant she can continue her fight!

A donor drive has been scheduled in Hadley’s honor to increase the pool of donors in hope of finding a match for her.  A simple cheek swab is all that is needed to determine if you could be a MATCH for this most beloved baby.  You could be the one to save Hadley’s life.  You could be the one to save a child just like her.

Please come and support this life changing event by joining the registry and giving Hadley a chance at life.  The cure starts with you!

A note from Jennifer Lawrence:

I had the opportunity to meet sweet Hadley over the Holidays!  She and her family are good friends of my family.  She is a remarkable little girl and has been through so much already in her young life.  I encourage you to please take part in the Be the Match this coming Sunday!  The Cure starts with You!
