Why YOU are so important as a bone marrow donor?
Every 10 minutes blood cancer takes a life.
Leukemia is the most common disease children and young adults in the U.S die of,
and a bone marrow transplant may be their only chance for survival.
Only 4 out of every 10 patients will receive the transplant that could save their lives.
What is my commitment if I register?
Will also be listed on the Be The Match Registry® (operated by the NMDP) until your 61st
birthday, unless you ask to be removed.
Will consider donating to any searching patient who needs a bone marrow transplant.
How do I become a bone marrow donor?
You need to be between the ages of 18 and 55 years old and meet the eligibility
requirements and understand your commitment.
You need to complete a registration form.
You need to swab your cheeks using a cotton-tipped swab to collect cheek cells
which will identify your HLA tissue-type.
