Make sure you tune in July 19-23, when Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” steps behind the podium to guest host on “Jeopardy!”. A donation matching the cumulative total of all the contestants’ winnings that week will be made to the charity of Robin’s choice—Be The Match.
In June 2007, Robin was diagnosed with breast cancer and five years later, she was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). She underwent a bone marrow transplant, and her sister, Sally-Ann, was her donor, but most patients don’t have matching donors within their families.
That’s why the Be The Match mission is so vital. We connect patients with donors—people from all backgrounds willing to help any patient in need—and facilitate life-saving transplants. And that’s why Robin joined forces with Be The Match to inform the public about the need for more donors.
As you may have guessed, we’re beyond thrilled with the generosity of both “Jeopardy!” and Robin Roberts. We’re inviting you to join in the fun and turn the donation into a true “Daily Double” by donating to help patients in need.
Your donation in any amount helps to add new potential life-saving donors to the Be The Match Registry®, supports groundbreaking research and helps to cover uninsured costs throughout the transplant journey for patients in need. Every dollar you contribute moves us closer to DOUBLING the “Jeopardy!” donation.
To see Robin guest host “Jeopardy!,” be sure to watch the week of July 19th (check local listings or visit Jeopardy.com for show times and stations). Remember, Jeopardy! is matching all of the contestant winnings that week and donating the funds to Be The Match. Can’t tune in for the show? You can still support Robin and make it a true “Daily Double” by donating today.
