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 21, 2016


Our annual Golf Tournament will be
Friday, June 9, 2017 at Wood Hollow Golf Course
 in Longview, Texas.

At the National Marrow Donor Council Meeting in Minneapolis on Nov. 5, 2015, Anita Quinn & Because I Care received a Partnership Award for 25 years of recruiting potential donors. BIC has put over 24,000 potential donors for the Be The Match Registry since January 1990. In an effort to find a donor for her son Brian, Anita helped start, Because I Care, a volunteer recruitment group.
