As a child, Morgan Davidson was a firsthand witness to her grandmother’s battle with and ultimate death from aggressive lymphoma. Before her grandmother died, Morgan committed to do all she could to give hope to others suffering from the disease. Her initial one-day event, Cuts for a Cure, successfully raised $29,000, recruited 25 people to sign up for the National Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Registry, and set Morgan on a new tikkun olam journey.

Inspired by her initial success, Morgan launched the Ambassadors for Hope Club and engaged other teens to help her on her journey to save lives. She set out to pursue the education she needed to become one of the youngest trained volunteer recruiters for Be the Match National Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Registry, as well as a City of Hope volunteer recruiter for blood, plasma, and platelet donors.

The feeling of giving hope to someone’s life is irresistible. I feel responsible to carry out my mission by motivating other teens to get involved.
