Description:

Do you have ten minutes to stop by and get a cheek swab today? Every 4 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. 1000 people die each year because they cannot find a matching donor. YOU could be the cure.  1 IN 4 CAUCASIAN PATIENTS cannot find a match.  1 IN 3 AFRICAN PATIENTS cannot find a match.  1 IN 2 LATINO PATIENTS cannot find a match.  1 IN 2 ASIAN PATIENTS cannot find a match.  MULTIRACIAL PATIENTS face the worst odds. Michigan Blood is pairing with Asian Student Union to host a Be The Match registry at GVSU. Joining the registry is quick, painless, and free.  Only 1 in 540 people who join with a cheek swab are asked to donate in their entire lifetime. After joining, you could be called in a few months, many years, or never.  80% of these people donate non-surgically, and 20% donate surgically. Either process of giving blood stem cells or bone marrow is of NO COST to the donor. You must be between the ages of 18 and 44 to donate. Stop by ANY TIME between 8am and 3:30pm on Tuesday, April 2 to donate! Join the registry. Be The Match.
