GenCure and H-E-B join worldwide effort to find lifesaving transplants for leukemia and other blood cancer patients
On Saturday Sept. 15, San Antonio will be the site of the largest coordinated World Marrow Donor Day registry drive in the world. World Marrow Donor Day is an international effort to thank donors worldwide and educate and encourage the public to join the global registry and become stem cell donors. Volunteer donors who are a match will donate stem cells or bone marrow to aid patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers.
GenCure, a subsidiary of nonprofit BioBridge Global, is partnering with H-E-B and Be The Match to host marrow donor registration drives at 16 H-E-B locations for World Marrow Donor Day. The drives will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donors, patients and patient families will share their stories about how the registry affected their lives.
