Why This Matters
Anyone can get blood cancer or a blood disorder, but not everyone has the same chance of surviving. That's because a stem cell transplant – often the only treatment option – requires the patient and the donor to have the same ethnicity, and there's a huge shortage of non-white donors. We aim to increase awareness of stem cell donation and diversify registries so all patients, regardless of their ethnicities, can find lifesaving donors.
