Gulf Coast Marrow Donor Program
Every three minutes, one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. That’s more than six people each hour, or 148 people each day.
Patients are searching for a cure. It could be you.
We need donors like you to help be the cure. Seventy percent of all patients who need a transplant don’t have a fully matched donor in their family. A patient’s likelihood of finding a matching donor on the Be The Match Registry is estimated to range from 23-77%, depending on ethnic background. Our donor and cord blood registries can only continue to grow if people like you sign up to become a member of the registry. Because of you, more patients will be able to receive a life-saving transplant.
You can make a difference – You never know when you could be the cure.
