Once a Seminole, Always a Seminole

As two Florida State University Alums, my husband and I have always joked that our three boys were born to bleed garnet & gold. Ironically, our oldest son, Carter, is now battling a rare disease impacting his bone marrow and blood. We have spent months enduring testing and waiting with our doctors to determine a treatment plan for Carter. During the time we have spent with our doctors in Atlanta and in Boston, one thing has remained the same. A bone marrow transplant is the only true cure for bone marrow failure. A search of the world-wide donor database has been conducted and Carter’s brothers have been tested. Carter does NOT have a fully matched donor.

We are reaching out to our fellow ‘Nole Nation for help! Our boy has loved Florida State Seminoles Football since before he could walk. He has been dreaming of the day he’d start his own years walking the campus in Tallahassee. Dalvin Cook has been on the wall in his room for as long as we can remember! His football and jersey signed by @coachnorvell are two of his most prized possessions! We are asking everyone who reads this and loves the Florida State Seminoles the way we do, to please consider registering for Be The Match. We need YOU to register to donate, if you are between the ages of 18-40. We need YOU to encourage your friends and family to register to donate. We need YOU to help us spread the word. You could be the ONE to help our son, Carter, get back to living his life like a ten year old boy should and one day be a student at Florida State University! The Marching Chiefs are already helping this cause, you can too!

If you are not able to help by registering, PLEASE share this post for Carter. He is one special ‘Nole!

Please consider registering for Be the Match by texting Cure4Carter to 61474 or by using the QR code. Registering is quick, easy, a painless mouth swab and at no cost to the donor. #seminoles #nolenation #gonoles #keepclimbing #cure4carter #teamcarter #bethematch
