Marrow Registry saves another life, but others are dying - Join the Registry today!!!

Back in October I blogged about several seriously ill people who were waiting to find bone marrow donors on the National Marrow Donor Program registry. Two of them, Pia Awal and Varun, found matches! Pia's organization has added more than 14,000 people to the registry. So please think about registering. You just might be the person who saves a life. Minority and multiracial individuals are especially underrepresented in the registry, so if you are a minority or multiracial person PLEASE consider registering.

Sadly, Sagarika lost her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia the day after Thanksgiving.

For more information, go here (in the U.S.) or here (in Canada).
