You have the unique power to help cure blood cancer! Leukemia and other blood cancers affect thousands of Americans every year, including NorthWood members. You may be the one person who can save a particular patient’s life. You could give a toddler the chance to grow up, or allow a young mother to see her children graduate, or give a family back their dad.
Donation is not as difficult as it once was. It’s quick and simple! With a simple swab of the cheek, a bit of your DNA is collected. The National Bone Marrow Registry uses this DNA to figure out your unique markers that can match you with patients in need of a life-saving marrow transplant. After the match, most procedures are similar to a regular blood donation.
For more information, check out the BeTheMatch.org website, or visit the Glocal Impact table in the lobby. You can be a hero to a match who is waiting just for you!
