Our mission is to educate the community regarding the under-representation of minorities in the National Marrow Donor Program.
Guardian Angel Council (GAC) is a 501(c)(3) that exists to create awareness for the National Bone Marrow
Donor Registry, specifically through the program Be The Match. There is an ever-growing need for marrow
donors, as there is a 1-in-4 chance of having a sibling be a match, and about 70% of patients in need of a
transplant do not have a suitable donor in their family. GAC pays special attention to increasing minority
participation in the registry - minorities make up only 25% of potential donors, and patients are more likely to
find that life-saving match from donors of their own ethnic background.
