Be The Match: Virtual Bone Marrow Donor Drive
For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. You could be the cure. Take the first step to being someone’s cure by adding your name to the national bone marrow registry. If you are between the ages of 18 and 40, participate in the Be The Match: Virtual Bone Marrow Donor Dive and join the registry by texting “NATA” to 61474 or visiting the NATA page on the Be The Match website. Once you have completed the online form, you will receive your swab in the mail. Please return the swab by Oct. 31 to help a patient in need.
