Ballin’ for Bone Marrow

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.
