Swab a Cheek, Save a Life

Each year, approximately 200,000 American children and adults are diagnosed with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.  Many thousands of others suffer from life-threatening diseases such as aplastic anemia or sickle cell disease, cureable only with a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.

Since tissue type is inherited, like eye or hair color, a patient’s best chance of finding a genetically matched donor lies with people of similar background. Unfortunately, the worldwide donor pool is not adequately representative of all ethnic and racial groups.

In order to find a donor for everyone who can benefit from a transplant, it is important to have an ethnically diverse worldwide registry of donors. Increasing the representation of minority donors is critical.

Someone in the world is waiting for a match. It could be you. All it takes to find out is a simple swab of your cheek. Please register as a donor today! Even if you are not eligible to register, you can still join our Donor Circle, spread the word and stand in support of our mission!
