ABC’s Robin Roberts Urges You to Be a Bone Marrow Donor (Day 5 of 19 Days of Activism)

English: Logo of National Marrow Donor Program

“In June of 2012, ABC’s Good Morning America anchor, Robin Roberts announced that she had been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and her best treatment option was a bone marrow transplant. Fortunately her sister Sally-Ann was a perfect match and became her marrow donor. More than 70% of patients will not have a match in their family. They depend on the Be The Match Registry® to find that match — someone like you.

As a Be The Match Ambassador of Hope, Robin is asking others to join the Be The Match Registry as a potential marrow donor. Together we can help eliminate blood cancer.”   Click here for more information
