African American Bone Marrow Awareness Month
Recurring event see all
July 1 – July 31 CDT
African American Bone Marrow Awareness Month is observed in July. Donating marrow can cure someone with sickle cell anemia or life-threatening blood cancers. But only 6 out of 10 African American patients will receive the bone marrow transplant they need.
Bone marrow transplants often are used to treat leukemia; lymphomas; multiple myeloma; and other nonmalignant blood disorders, such as sickle cell anemia. Help raise awareness and join the registry today!
