PTK is hosting “Be the Match” bone marrow donor registry in Founders Hall on May 6, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a bone marrow donation may be their only hope for a cure. Be The Match Registry® is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it. Be The Match is the largest and most diverse donor registry in the world. See more on the registry here: http://bethematch.org/about-us/.
