Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. And every 9 minutes someone loses their fight. But there is hope. A blood stem cell or marrow transplant can cure patients battling life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma and other blood diseases like sickle cell anemia.

COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on our ability to add people to the Be The Match Registry (the National Marrow Donor Program). Volunteers will use social media and their personal networks to advocate on behalf of patients. We need people who are organized and passionate about making a difference. Someone you encourage to sign up could go on to save a life!

Hours are flexible and it all can be done from the comfort of your couch. By volunteering, you can help give hope to thousands of patients and their families.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Icla da Silva Foundation is to save lives by recruiting bone marrow donors and by providing support services to children and adults with leukemia and other diseases treatable by marrow transplants.

Description

The Icla da Silva Foundation was established in June of 1992, as a nonprofit organization under section 501(c) 3 of the IRS Code.

The organization honors the life of a thirteen-year-old Brazilian girl who passed away after bravely fighting leukemia and despite all her family, friends and neighbors efforts in finding her a matching donor.

Icla's last wishes, enthusiasm and everlasting hope deeply inspire the Icla da Silva Foundation's programs and activities. In the last 20 years the Foundation has grown to become one of the largest recruitment organization for the National Marrow Donor Program
