Bone Marrow Donor Registry Drive



Bone Marrow Donor Registry on June 2

The University of Iowa's Marrow Donor Program is always in need of donors to add to their registry! Staff from the program will be here today seeking to register donors.

When people are faced with a life-threatening illness requiring a marrow transplant, the last person they expect to help them is a complete stranger, but that's just what marrow donors often are. Everyday heroes are both those who use every resource of strength they have to survive a marrow transplant and those who give of themselves to save the life of another.

It doesn't take much to register as a marrow donor, just the time it takes to complete a consent form and swab the inside of your cheek. You are invited to register as a donor if you are between the ages of 18 and 60 and in good health.

Be the one to give more birthdays. Be the one to save a life. 

Thousands of patients are searching for their matched donor. Maybe it's you.
