FAITH HOPE AND DETERMINATION INC, a non-profit organization, was formed on August 1, 2008 in memory of Joseph Grimsley.
On August 29, 2006, the 35-year-old father of three was diagnosed with an aggressive blood and marrow disease known as Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). Doctors told Joseph that without a bone marrow transplant he would not live another year.
Family and friends began a "fight for life" campaign in an effort to find a donor match for Joseph. A match was never found and on August 19, 2007, Joseph lost his battle with cancer. Even though a donor match was not found for him, Joseph asked us to continue the mission after he was gone to raise awareness, educate and encourage minorities to join the Marrow Registry.
Help us to realize Joseph's dream. Join the registry today...Create hope for tomorrow.
To help save lives by increasing awareness in the minority community about the urgent need for new bone marrow and stem cell donors.
