Each year, 10,000 people across the U.S. are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma. A genetically matching transplant may save their lives, but only 3 out of 10 patients will find a match in their family. The rest must search a registry to find that one caring stranger willing to donate his or her marrow or blood cells. Learn more about the work of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP).
The Marrow Foundation is the fund raising partner of the NMDP.
