Give the Gift of Life

Because I Care (BIC) is a volunteer recruitment group,
based in Longview, TX, which supports the BE THE MATCH Registry for marrow donors. We conduct recruitment drives at health fairs, businesses, churches, medical facilities, schools, and colleges in northeast Texas. Since 1990, BIC has added more than 20,000 potential donors to the BE THE MATCH Registry. Dozens of those recruits have become donors, offering the "Gift of Life" to patients in need of life saving transplants.

Our Annual Awards Banquet,
will be Friday, October 24, 2014

Our annual Golf Tournament was
Friday, May 16, 2014 at Wood Hollow Golf Course
 in Longview, Texas.
