When people are faced with a life-threatening illness requiring a marrow transplant, the last person they expect to help them is a complete stranger, but that's just what marrow donors often are. Everyday heroes are both those who use every resource of strength they have to survive a marrow transplant and those who give of themselves to save the life of another.
It doesn't take much to register as a marrow donor, just the time it takes to complete a consent form and swab the inside of your cheek. You are invited to register as a donor if you are 18 to 44 years of age and in good health.
Be the one to give more birthdays. Be the one to save a life.
Thousands of patients are searching for their matched donor. Maybe it's you.
