There is a cure for cancer… and it could be YOU.

 Registry Drive in Honor of Alexes Harris

alexes

This Thursday (TODAY), December 1st

HUB: Room 340: 11 am to 3 pm

Message from Dr. Harris: 

Umbilical cord (my treatment) is the next wave of stem cell transplant, but the current gold star is still having a matched related or un-related donor. This is why we are organizing a national bone marrow donation registry campaign. I wanted to make my cancer matter, so my great friends stepped in to make this happen. I didn’t want people to have to wait like I did or make the hard decision their treatment. If we can help one person with a match today we made a difference. Our goal is to have 4,000 new people registered by this effort.

Can’t come to the drive but still want to join? CLICK HERE TO REGISTER ONLINE

BE THE MATCH: Saving Lives Through Cellular Therapy 

For thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists. Every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Each year, 14,000 patients, a marrow transplant is the best hope for survival. Seventy percent of patients do not have a donor in their family, they depend on Be The Match–the world’s largest and most diverse registry. Be The Match is a community of millions of volunteers standing by, ready to say YES if their marrow is determined to be the best match for a patient.  Continue reading
