Brett and Shana Melius met a 3-year old African-American boy named Jaden Hilton through an effort with Greg Marius of Entertainer’s Basketball Classic. This new acquaintance would not only touch their lives but would eventually have a significant impact on the lives of thousands others.
Our mission is to inform and educate individuals, especially in ethnically diverse communities, about the benefits of adult stem cells and treatment options they provide via peripheral blood stem cells, bone marrow and/or umbilical cord blood donation.
MMA, Inc. heightened its efforts to build awareness especially amongst communities that are just not educated, about the need for donors, for those who are affected by leukemia, sickle cell anemia, heart disease, diabetes and other diseases at higher rates throughout the US. In an effort to fulfill the mission of educating these underrepresented communities, Preserve Our Legacy was formed.
We will assist in preserving the legacy for all people by providing factual tools, such as health care resources and information about life-saving tools and programs. We will be vigilant in aiding the research efforts through a series of events and educational community programs, which will preserve the legacy for people, worldwide.
