As Jeremy McGrath is as close as a motocross champions can get to a household name, the health issues his wife has been battling may come as a shock to some. After surviving breast cancer two years ago, Kim McGrath was diagnosed with Leukemia in May. To treat it, she needed both chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Recieving a bone marrow transplant is difficult, resulting in Jeremy spearheading fundraisers and marrow drives in an attempt to get people registered in the system.
Luckily, Kim found a transplant, but Jeremy isn’t stopping there. He’s taken up the cause to raise awareness for Be The Match, the national registry for bone marrow matches, encouraging people to get tested and join the registry. As part of his alliance, he’s announced that he will be donating all of his proceeds from the recently released Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad to Be The Match.
It’s unclear exactly what percentage and how much his donation will amount to, but the monetary donations combined with his effort and time is certainly a great act of selflessness from Mr. McGrath.
