A call to action. A cry for help. An opportunity for you to realize your power to give strength to someone affected by a blood cancer (Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma). Get involved. Make someone stronger.
Almost one million people in the U.S. are living with a type of blood cancer, such as leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
In 2012, 140,000 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with one of these diseases.
There is a 1 in 10 chance for a Caucasian to find a bone marrow match, but only 1 in 20,000 chance for a South Asian.
Every 10 minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. You can help change this statistic!
Leukemia or lymphoma can affect anyone, regardless of race, sex or age. The odds of surviving these diseases can be significantly improved by increasing the number of people registered with the National Marrow Donor Program and educating them enough to help them make the decision of donating if the chance arises. We are hoping that with the help of all of you and your friends, we can find a match for any patients in need.
