“BE THE MATCH” – Join the bone marrow donor registry!
If you are between the ages of 18 to 44, you are the ideal age to join the bone marrow donor registry with a simple cheek swab. By joining the registry, you could help provide a cure for a blood cancer patient. Patients with leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia or other blood diseases search the registry every day for a marrow match. The more potential donors on the registry, the better each patient's chance of receiving a life-saving marrow transplant.
