World Marrow Donor Day

What is WMDD?

World Marrow Donor Day is a global effort to register potential donors to fight blood cancers. The GenCure Marrow Donor Program will participate in this worldwide effort, by hosting the biggest marrow donor registry effort in the United States.

How will we do this, you ask? GenCure is partnering with H-E-B to hold registration events across San Antonio, TX at 42 H-E-B stores.

What can you do to help?

We're asking our San Antonio community to rally behind our efforts to fight cancer through the registration of committed donors to the national bone marrow registry. Our success equals the availability of stem cell donors to patients suffering from blood cancers/disorders not just in the US, but all over the world.

How can you help to make this happen? Start by signing up to staff one of our marrow registration tables at any of our H-E-B locations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 16. 

Volunteers must also attend one of the following training dates:
