Andy Mineo Collaborates with Magician to Make Cancer Disappear
Andy Mineo has teamed up with magician Jim Munroe and Be The Match Registry for the campaign “Make Cancer Disappear.” The campaign is to challenge people to become a donor and supporter of blood cancer patients.
Be The Match Registry is a nonprofit organization that has a list of registered people willing to participate in a blood transplant with patients with blood diseases.
Jim Munroe is a leukemia survivor. Doctors couldn’t find a match to Munroe’s blood from a family member. They proceeded then to look for a match from the Be The Match Registry. Only one person out of nine million people on the registry could help Munroe.
Mineo himself has a grind against blood diseases: his mother, Fran Mineo, died in September from leukemia. No one from Be The Match matched Fran’s blood, so she could not get a transplant to cure her.
