Save a life. Sign up on the National Marrow Donor Program Registry.
You can join the donor Registry online today at no cost to you. In honor of Marrow Awareness month, Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc., has provided an unrestricted grant to cover the cost of tissue-typing tests for potential donors who join online.
Join online for free while funding remains. Usually it costs $52 to tissue type the donor.
It’s easy to join:
Step 1. Confirm you meet basic donor guidelines.
Step 2. Complete the online registration form. This step will take about 30 minutes. To join for free, you must complete your online registration before November 30 or while funding remains.
Step 3. Use the kit mailed to you to get a swab of cheek cells. These will be used to test for your tissue type.
Seriously, it’s as easy as a cheek swab. If any of my readers end up donating stem cells to a patient, I’ll come hold your hand or send you a pie. You never know. You might save an adorkable girl’s life one day.
