Education and connection, putting faces to the names of patients, will go a long way in increasing the numbers in the registry, which will, in turn, increase the number of survivors.
(PRWEB) September 29, 2016
Every hour, 6 people in the U.S. die from a blood cancer. Against these odds, many patients take a blood cancer diagnosis as a death sentence. But hope is in sight. With innovative technologies and incredible leaders pulling together to fund research and clinical trials, there have been revolutionary results in the area of targeted cell treatments and immunotherapy. Researchers aren’t the only ones who can help increase survival rates; signing up to be a blood and bone marrow donor is a way that everyone can help to save lives.
Mia Hamm, Olympic Athlete and celebrity advocate for blood and bone marrow donation, graces the cover of the print campaign. Stressing the need for more donors to register at the National Bone Marrow Registry, Mia says, “Education and connection, putting faces to the names of patients, will go a long way in increasing the numbers in the registry, which will, in turn, increase the number of survivors.”
