You are giving someone hope when you join the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) Registry.
Help us reach our goal of recruiting 46,000 members to the Registry (10,000 online) during the Thanks Mom awareness and donor recruitment campaign.
Until we reach our goal during Thanks Mom (May 5 to May 19, 2008), our generous partners and contributors are covering the costs to add members to the Registry.
As you join, please consider making a financial contribution. Your tax-deductible gift in any amount provides hope for the future.
It's easy to join:
Step 1. Confirm you meet basic donor guidelines.
Step 2. Complete the online registration form and order your tissue-typing kit. This step will take about 30 minutes. Please remember funding is limited. To join with costs covered by our generous partners and contributors, you must complete the online registration step before May 20 or while funding remains.
Step 3. Use the kit to give a swab of cheek cells to test for your tissue type.
