The Masonic Blood+Organ Donor program has partnered with NMDP to assist those who are facing blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia and other life-threatening diseases.
Every year, 18,000 patients are diagnosed with one of these conditions that could be cured or treated with a blood stem cell transplant. Since 70% of them don’t have a fully-matched donor in their family, they depend on a bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplant to save their life. NMDP connects patients with a matching donor for a life-saving transplant.
To support this cause, you can join the cell donor registry, which is done by a simple cheek swab submitted through the mail.
