Every 3 minutes, someone in the US is diagnosed with blood cancer. A bone marrow or stem cell transplant can be a lifesaving treatment for patients with blood cancers and about 70 other diseases, including aplastic anemia and sickle cell disease.

Every year, about 15,000 new searches are initiated in the US for an unrelated matching donor. Diversity matters. Most patients find a donor in someone who share their ancestry.
