A Critical Need and How You Can Help
July is African American Bone Marrow Awareness Month, a month designated by Congress because of the critical need for more African American bone marrow donors.
African American patients in need of a marrow transplant are nearly 30% less likely to find a potentially life-saving marrow donor compared to Caucasians.
Read the stories of searching patient, Nivia and marrow donor, Kimberly. Both are African American women who show the great need for more African American’s on the registry. Help spread the word to your family and friends about the need for more potential marrow donors—especially African Americans. We need your help. You have the power to save a life.
