Bone Marrow Donation Links

Here’s some of what I found during my search for information about the bone marrow/PBSC donation process.

If you visit just one link on this page, click on this:

  • Be the Match, website of the National Marrow Donor Program. NMDP is the world’s largest bone marrow/PBSC and cord blood registry, listing more than 8 million individuals. As of January 2010 (according to Wikipedia), the NMDP had facilitated more than 38,000 transplants worldwide, and mine will add to that number. The site has information on everything from how to register to the search and matching process to details of the procedure, as well as videos and a blog with donor stories. An amazing resource.
