IMANI CORNELIUS MEETS HER BONE MARROW DONOR AT THE BE THE MATCH COUNCIL MEETING DURING AWARDS CEREMONY
On top of Athena Mari Asklipiadis and myself being recognized with the Awareness Award in front of 1300 people at the Be the Match Council Meeting awards breakfast, Be the Match arranged for our main subject Imani Cornelius to meet her bone marrow donor John on stage after we made our awards speech.
The attendees had no idea they would be surprised with this momentous frist meeting. This was the first time Imani would meet the bone marrow donor that saved her life. Their reunion was met with a standing ovation of the over 1300 attendees. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room and it was an emotional experience that I’m sure everyone will not soon forget!
We’ll be posting the video for their reunion in our WATCH video section soon.
