Does a donor get to choose the donation method?

There are two methods of donation – peripheral blood stem cell donation (PBSC) and bone marrow donation.

The patient’s medical team determines what method will provide the best chance for a successful transplant. The most common method, performed in 80% of transplants is PBSC.

We do ask that all registered donors be comfortable moving forward with either procedure. If you become a match for a patient and are not willing to donate through one of these methods, please notify your coordinator immediately.

There are many ways to get involved and support our mission.
You could be raising awareness, joining the registry, hosting your own [registration] event, taking on a fundraising challenge, or anything in between.
