This is not your typical wedding registry.
In lieu of gifts for our special day, we are asking you to help us cure cancer by donating to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Fred Hutch scientists are world leaders in revolutionizing the way we prevent, detect, and treat cancer and related diseases. To put it simply, their research saves lives and specifically Chris' life.
In 2009, Chris received a bone marrow transplant at Fred Hutchinson from a man in Germany to cure her leukemia. Today, 9 years later, she is alive and well. If it were not for the work of Fred Hutch, we would not be celebrating our wedding.
Both Don and Chris owe their love story and marriage to Fred Hutch and the amazing work they do to cure Cancer. Additionally they wish to acknowledge the amazing gift of life given to Chris by her donor, Carsten.
Thank you for your gift to help save lives and give others the opportunity to experience the joys that we are sharing with you.
Chris and Don
