The Purpose of Christopher's Challenge is to pay for the typing of samples for individuals willing to become potential donors through Be The Match.
Helping to Pay
Christopher's Challenge is also able to assist with patients' costs not covered by insurance, as well as the many amenities that have been added to the Bone Marrow Unit at Strong Memorial Hospital, such as cots, recliners, laptop computers, and DVD players.
*** If you are between the ages of 45-59, please contact Christopher’s Challenge and we will pay the $195 typing fee for all committed potential donors. ***
Gift of Life
