Every three minutes, someone in the US is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia. It can happen to anyone at any time—but so can a cure – a marrow transplant. Most of us won’t have a matching marrow donor in our family. So, Be The Match connects patients with life-saving donors. Help support this cause…with a click. Go to the Be Well Northwest Facebook page, and for every LIKE we get, we’ll donate a dollar to Be The Match. Save lives without spending a cent at the Be Well Northwest Facebook page.

94/7 is partnering with Vitalogy Foundation for the EB Research Partnership
Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation has partnered with us to raise money for several amazing nonprofit organizations in 2015 and beyond! The Vitalogy Foundation is a public non-profit organization founded in 2006 by the members of Pearl Jam and their manager, supporting the efforts of non profit organizations doing commendable work in the fields of community health, the environment, arts and education, and social change. $2 from every ticket sold to our December to Remember concert series will benefit the Vitalogy Foundation which supports the EB Research Partnership. EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa) is devastating, and currently without a cure. An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. Given that EB affects only 30,000 people in the US, advancing this research relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations. Stay tuned to 94/7 this fall for December to Remember show dates and lineup announcements! (NOTE: Pearl Jam will not be performing at these shows.) Learn more about Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation.
