For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 25 years Be The Match ® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program ®  (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant.  
The global transplant network includes more than 488 leading centers worldwide, including transplant centers, cooperative registries and cord blood banks.
Our own Gary Carley is currently fighting leukemia and may need a marrow transplant in the future, which brings this closer to home.  Many of us have already registered with Be the Match, but for those who have not, this week Mark Heuchert will have the cheek swabs and paperwork necessary to join.  It's a simple process: swab your inner cheek and submit the swab with the information form.  You are then entered into the national database and available as a possible resource to those in need.  
We look forward to providing this opportunity to members to make a difference.
