Event Description

Chase Foley has been a fighter since the day he was born. At the age of 2 and half years old he has undergone more medical procedures than the average adult endures in a lifetime. Chase is battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and is in need of a bone marrow transplant to survive.
Chase's treatments, including endless blood transfusions and chemotherapy, have forced the Foley family to move from Watertown to Albany. Now they are turning to their hometown for help in Chase's search for a matching bone marrow donor.
Chase, like thousands of patients in need of a bone marrow transplant, has not found a match within his family and must turn to the national registry to find a donor. If you are between the ages of 18-55, a simple cheek swab puts you into the national registry and gives Chase and others fighting blood cancer and other a 2nd chance at life. Come out on May 31st at the Bruce M. Wright Memorial Conference Center for your chance to join the fight.
