New York Swab Party at XIP Pharmacy

For many patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a bone marrow transplant provides their best chance for survival. But many patients do not receive a transplant because no matching donor can be found. In fact, only 30% of patients find a match within their family; the other 70% of patients rely on a perfect stranger to give them a second chance at life. Sadly, 6 out of 10 patients never receive the lifesaving transplant they need. This could be changed if more people registered as potential bone marrow donors, simply by swabbing the inside of their cheeks. Register as a bone marrow donor and you may be the one person able to give a patient with blood cancer a second chance at life.
