Giving back has always been important to Alyssa and her husband Neil. But now, more than ever, they are passionate about two specific charities that are near and dear to them:

Thousands of patients with life-threatening diseases depend on Be The Match Foundation to raise funds to help make bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplants possible. You can help by becoming a donor, providing financial assistance for patients who are unable to afford their medical burdens and to fund cutting edge research that is saving lives or by participating in a Be the One Run event in your area. You can even do something as simple a going to your local blood donation center giving the precious gift life with your blood or platelets to patients going through the transplant process.

You have the power to heal. You can help save a life. www.marrow.org

Alyssa & her husband finishing the 2010 Be The One Run. Alyssa was the first female to finish—less than 2yrs after her last bone marrow transplant!


Big Oak Ranch is a Christian home for children without parents who need a chance. The children live in as normal a setting as possible and as many as eight children live in each of the Ranch’s homes with a dedicated, Christian couple serving as “Mom and Dad”. They offer children a second chance to discover themselves in family, work, discipline and a loving Christian environment. To learn more about this wonderful organization and support this worthy cause, please visit them at www.bigoak.org.
