Save a Life! Join the National Marrow Donation Program!

There is no cure for cancer, right? Well, for some patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, there is. A bone marrow transplant. Donated from a healthy person like YOU. Now, don't freak out - it's not that scary. There are even non-surgical donation possibilities. Even with surgery, you'd be back to normal within 3 weeks. That's nothing - you just saved a life!

If you're still thinking, I'm not sure... think of this: most of the registry is White. If you are Black, Pacific Islander, Asian, Hispanic, or mixed - you can make an even bigger difference. And if you're White, you can still save a life - matches are not based strictly on ethnicity.

It is not a stretch to say that cancer will affect all of us in our lifetimes. Every FOUR minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. What if it's YOUR child that needs the transplant? Your mom? Your spouse? What if it's you?

Join today! Be the Match :)
