About NATIONAL MARROW DONOR PROGRAM

Mission Statement

For patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, a bone marrow or cord blood transplant may be their best or only hope for a cure. Yet 70% of patients who need a transplant to do not have a fully matched donor in their family. They depend on NMDP and our supporters to find a match to save their life. We also provide one-on-one support to patients and their families throughout the transplant journey.

Description

NMDP provides patients access to more than 41 million donors around the world who stand ready to be a life-saving marrow or blood stem cell donor. There are also more than 811,000 cord blood units listed on registries across the globe. Because there are patients who can’t find a match, we need more people to join the registry, and to be there when they are called as a match. Patients are counting on us.
