CCA HOSTS ‘BE THE MATCH’ Residents are invited to join the Be The Match Registry from 2 to 6 p.m. at Claremont Craft Ales, 1420 N. Claremont Blvd., 204c. Be The Match pairs potential bone marrow donors and people with life-threatening blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, for life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplants. The group needs marrow donors as well as volunteers and financial contributions. Be The Match also provides one-on-one support, education and guidance before, during and after transplant. CCA and Kimmel and Associates are hosting this event because of friends like Michael, the son of Erika Rieger and grandson of Otto and Rosie Rieger, who are lifelong Claremont residents and served Claremont Unified School district for three decades. Michael was born at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in 2000. His parents were told he probably wouldn’t survive that first week. That prognosis became a month, and then a year. He is now almost 18 years old, managing his disease as an enthusiastic senior at Claremont High School, where his brother, Cameron Kimmel, is a freshman.
