Student vs. Blood Cancer

It's a fact: Young people are often the best donors for patients fighting blood cancer. When you are in the "prime of your life," it's also the best time to help save a life.

That's why we team up with students like you to hold more bone marrow donor registration drives at campuses across the country - to add more young people to our list of potential lifesavers. Just look at the difference our college students have made:

Over 2400 Campus drives
Over 224,000 Potential lifesavers registered
Over 900 Bone marrow donations
