World Marrow Donor Day

Thank you to all the blood stem cell donors and registry members who are saving lives around the world!

Did you know saving lives through blood stem cell donation is a truly international mission?  Nearly 60% of all blood stem cell transplants involve either an international donor or patient.!

The United States is one of 50+ countries that celebrate World Marrow Donor Day to thank everyone who has donated blood stem cell donors, via marrow or PBSC, as well as registry members who are standing ready to donate to any patient in need. It is also a day to raise awareness of the need for more people to sign up—especially young, ethnically diverse donors who help increase the diversity of the Be The Match Registry.

Patients and their families are tremendously grateful to every one of the more than 37 million people across the globe who are offering hope of a cure.

Help celebrate worldwide by inviting friends and family to join the registry to save a life.
