Each one of the faces above represent someone in our community who has been faced with cancer. Sadly, there are thousands more! YOU can help fight this battle as over 70 diseases can be cured with a bone marrow transplant. A bone marrow transplant replaces bone marrow that is either not working properly or has been destroyed by chemotherapy or radiation. A bone marrow transplant is a lifesaving treatment for thousands of people fighting blood cancer like leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell. Only 30% of those needing a bone marrow transplant find a match within their own family. 80% of the collection process is done so by collecting stem cell, a process that is very similar to donating blood plasma. 4-6 hours of your time colleting stem cell, can save the life of another. There are literally thousands waiting for a match and you have the power to make the difference - it’s in your DNA.
