National Marrow Donor Program(R) Kicks off National Awareness Campaign
Date:5/5/2008

stiocytosis (HLH) that

affects one out of every million newborn children. The good news is

that HLH can be cured with a marrow transplant.

-- Deb Rusnock (Mich.), devoted wife and mother, was diagnosed in 2004

with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). She prays daily that a donor

will be found so she can return to good health and to "typical mom

activities" with her daughter.

Every day, more than 6,000 patients like Matt, Alexandra, Blake, Andrew and Deb search the Registry for a life-saving donor. Seventy percent of patients will not find a match within their family, and only three in 10 patients receive the transplant that could save their lives. Increasing the number of diverse donors on the Registry is critical because patients have the best chance of finding a match within their own race.

People can take part in Thanks Mom by attending one of the hundreds of donor drives across the nation. To find a drive, visit http://www.marrow.org and use the zip code finder to find a drive near you. People can also register online at marrow.org and become part of the NMDP's interactive Donor Garden on marrow.org, where they can share their story and inspire others to get involved.

Anyone between the ages of 18 and 60, in good health and willing to help any patient in need is eligible to join the NMDP Registry.
