2018 Walk

Team Mighty Marrow

Welcome To Team Mighty Marrow Page!


As all of you know, in August of 2016 Marissa was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, a very rare blood disease and was in need of a bone marrow transplant. We were blessed that our older daughter Julia was a perfect match and we were ready for the transplant.

We were sent to NY Presbyterian Hospital where we met our incredible team of doctors, nurses, therapists,child life specialists who helped and are still helping us get through this very difficult journey. During our very long hospital stay and continued out-patient visits we continue to be amazed by the care, treatment and compassion that everyone has and continues to show us. Hope and Heroes is an incredible organization that gives a tremendous support to the hospital who in turn support us. Last year we were unable to participate in the Hope and Heros walk but are very excited to be part of this very special event and hope to give back to an organization that gave us SO much!

We are thrilled to be a part of the 9th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, May 20th, 2018 to support children with cancer and blood disorders and their families.

With your help, Hope & Heroes can continue supporting the patients, programs, and research at the Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology & Stem Cell Transplantation at Columbia University Medical Center. The Division, located at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, is one of the largest and most distinguished centers for children with cancer and blood disorders in the country. They are depending on us to make sure their unique programs are available to all the children they treat and that their scientists keep working until they find a cure.

Please give as generously as you can - or consider joining our team and walking with us. The Walk takes place at beautiful Pier 84 (West 44th St. at the Hudson River) and is an inspiring and fun day for the whole family.

Please come walk with Team Mighty Marrow if you can!


Frank, Denise, Julia & Marissa
