Two ways to save lives
The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center and GenCure are collaborating with the Texas State University Radiation Therapy Program, for an opportunity to save lives - right on campus this March 30-April 2!
Share the blood
Consider making a blood donation during our 4-day drive. Your donation ensures the blood supply is replenished and ready for patients who need it.

Join the registry
Another way to help patients is to join the Be The Match marrow registry. The GenCure team, in partnership with Be The Match, will be set up at locations across campus ready to sign up potential donors. Signing up for the registry simply means you are making yourself available to patients who might one day need you. If you are between the ages of 18 to 44, stop by a booth and let one of our friendly volunteers help you sign up. Can't make it?
