Every Year, 10,000 patients suffering from leukemia, lymphoma, other cancers and genetic disorders need a marrow transplant but have no donor match in their family. These patients must rely on a complete stranger to save their life and volunteer donor registries to find their lifesaving matches.
Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation will be holding its fourth annual Walk for Life to raise awareness about bone marrow donation.
Headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation is a leading, international public bone marrow and blood stem cell registry. Gift of Life facilitates transplants for patients in need via a network of volunteer donors that the Organization has been building for over 20 years. To date, Gift of Life has a growing registry of more than 230,00 donors and has facilitated over 2,600 transplants to date.
