The power of possibility
The power in becoming a lifesaver
Sign up to be on the NMDP Registry® during Black History Month, complete your swab kit and return it to NMDP. You could be someone’s only chance at a cure.
The power in numbers
Since 2020, there has been an increase in Black and African Americans joining the NMDP Registry helping increase the chances from 23% to 29% that a Black and African American patient will find a match.
This change means more Black lives will be saved.

The power in finding a cure
For sickle cell warriors Christina, Genesis and Rhiannon, finding a match created endless possibilities. There is a cure for sickle cell and blood cancers like leukemia—a blood stem cell donation from a matching donor, one who frequently shares the patient’s ethnic background. As more patients gain access to cellular therapy, more and more donors are needed.
Use your power to help save lives.
