How You Can Help
There is a great need for bone marrow donors, according to Be the Match, particularly for people between the ages of 18 and 44 and those from non-Caucasian, multiracial, and multiethnic backgrounds. To join the donor registry, simply fill out a questionnaire at bethematch.org. If you meet the qualifications, you’ll be mailed a cheek swab kit to send back. By joining the registry, you are making a commitment to donate to any patient in need if called to do so.
