Why World Marrow Donor Day?

 
 
World Marrow Donor Day (WMDD) is a special day celebrated once per year to thank all blood stem cell donors worldwide. We thank unrelated donors, family donors, cord blood donors, donors who already have donated, and donors who are on the global registry waiting to donate.
