Jeremy McGrath To Donate Video Game Proceeds To BeTheMatch.org

Last week, Jeremy McGrath announced that his wife Kim has found a much-needed marrow donor as a treatment for her recent Leukemia diagnosis thanks to the efforts of Bethematch.org. In response, Jeremy has pledged to donate his profits from the new video game,Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad available now for Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network, to Bethematch.org.

Surviving breast cancer two years ago, in May of this year, Kim McGrath was diagnosed with Leukemia. Her treatment was immediate chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Jeremy and Kim moved quickly into action.  Kim focused on the difficult chemotherapy session and endured month-long hospital stays. Meanwhile, Jeremy spearheaded close to 40 marrow drives and fundraisers resulting in more than 4,000 people tested for possible inclusion within the Registry and more than a quarter of a million dollars raised.

“First, thank you again to everyone who has helped, donated, gotten tested and sent well-wishes to our family.  Your responses to my initial call to action have been incredible and the support and love just seems to continue to pour in,” said Jeremy McGrath.  “The fact that Kim found a match is really great news for us, but it is our hope that people will still get tested and join the Be the Match Registry.  I would also ask that companies that have charitable donation programs and those in the position to do something, please think about making a donation to Be The Match at any time throughout the year.  This organization provides a service that literally saves lives every day of the year…it’s pretty amazing.”

In an effort to raise more awareness and more funds, McGrath will be donating his portion of the download profits from his new video game,Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, released just a few weeks ago, to Bethematch.org. Those wishing to support the cause and get a great game can download a copy on Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation Network.

Well wishes can be sent directly to Kim at the Team Kim facebook page, found at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Team-KIM/221085671342637
