Tobias Truvillion and many other celebrities, including Darnell “J.D.” Williams, Chad Coleman, Jamie Hector, DJ Clue, DoItAll Dupré from the iconic rap group Lords of the Underground, enjoyed a fun day of hoops for a great cause. Ballin’ for Bone Marrow took place at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, NJ to support The Bone Marrow Foundation, a nonprofit organization offering financial assistance and free support services to bone marrow/stem cell transplant patients and their families.
Each year nearly 20,000 people, ages 0-74, in the U.S. are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses where blood stem cell transplantation from a related or unrelated matched donor is their best treatment option. These patients have leukemia, lymphoma, or other life-threatening diseases that can be treated by a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant.
