Register to Be a Bone Marrow Donor

Here's an opportunity to give of yourself so that someone else might have a better shot at living.

A bone marrow transplant offers people with cancer or certain blood diseases, such as leukemia, a meaningful chance for a cure. A simple blood test administered through a donation center can determine if you're a suitable match. You must be between the ages of 18 and 60 and in good general health.

National Marrow Donor Day is Saturday, February 12, but you can donate at any time. To arrange to be tested, contact the NMDP donor center nearest you at 1-800-MARROW2.
