The Jada Bascom Foundation was founded in 2009 by Jeana Moore when her granddaughter, Jada, was diagnosed and treated for Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Thanks to finding a matching bone marrow donor, Jada is now in remission and is a healthy active young girl adjusting to life as a pre-teen.
We wanted to give back in gratitude for that gift of life. The Jada Bascom Foundation helps organize donor registration drives in the Inland Northwest along with other important projects to increase the number of potential stem cell and bone marrow donors on the Be The Match registry and other registries around the world.
Jeana is a volunteer ambassador for the National Donor Marrow Program (Be the Match). She is also the walking representative of the foundation through the Steps To Marrow program. Jeana has a deep commitment to helping others find their bone marrow match and serving individuals with cancer and their families. Read more about Jeana in Our Stories.
As a nonprofit charitable organization (501 c 3), the mission of the Jada Bascom Foundation is to:
- Increase awareness regarding the great need for bone marrow donors
- Recruit bone marrow donors
- Support potential donors with the cost of tissue typing
