Every three minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer – leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma – and every ten minutes, someone dies from one of these diseases. Delete Blood Cancer DKMS, part of the world’s largest network of bone marrow donor centers and The Generosity Series are teaming up to change the odds for these patients.
In additional to blood cancers, there are a host of other diseases and disorders that a bone marrow transplant can help treat, like aplastic anemia, myelofibrosis, and sickle cell anemia. Because the majority of patients in need of a transplant will not be able to find a matching bone marrow donor in their family, nearly 14,000 people each year rely on the national registry and organizations like Delete Blood Cancer for an unrelated donor.
Generosity Brooklyn takes place in Prospect Park on May 15th. Opportunities to register as a bone marrow donor will be available from 7:30-11 am. Enter the Park by the Peristyle (white structure with Greek columns) at 96 Parkside Avenue across from the Parade Grounds.
