Gift of Life

You can save someone’s life by being a bone marrow donor!

For many with Blood Cancers, there is hope of a cure through a bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplant. Today, transplantation of healthy stem cells donated by related and unrelated volunteers offers hope to many patients suffering from these sometimes deadly diseases. Advances in transplantation have made this procedure a reality for thousands who are alive today because a stranger gave them the Gift of Life!

Last year we hosted a drive to register potential bone marrow donors. Although we can’t do it in person this year, you can still register easily through their mailed registration kit.

To register as a potential donor, simply order the kit, swab your cheek, and mail it in. The registry will contact you if you are a potential match. Especially needed are donors 18-35 years old.

It is free for those 35 and younger. Those 36-60, they ask for a $60 donation to cover the cost of the processing.
