One of the world’s largest World Marrow Donor Day events will take place across San Antonio on Saturday, Sept. 15.
For six hours that day, the GenCure Marrow Donor Program will be signing up potential donors for the national Be The Match registry at 16 H-E-B grocery stores and 7 blood donor rooms in San Antonio. Visiting any these locations that day, you will have a chance to learn about how your marrow works, who is in need of donations, and to register to potentially match a patient. Our volunteers will be previous donors, patients and members of their community. This day serves as an opportunity to get educated about this life saving donation by those who have given the gift and those that have had their lives or a loved one saved by transplant.
We’re asking our San Antonio community to rally behind our efforts to fight cancer through the registration of committed donors to the national bone marrow registry. Our success equals the availability of stem cell donors to patients suffering from blood cancers/disorders not just in the US, but all over the world.
