Every day thousands of blood cancer patients hope to find a matching donor who can give them a second chance at life. For 4-year-old Gregory, that person was Katie, who selflessly donated her bone marrow to save his life.

Together with DKMS, the world's largest bone marrow donor center, St. Joseph Cancer Center and Texas A&M Cancer Society are asking you to sign up as a potential bone marrow donor for patients in need. Please join us in the fight to defeat blood cancer by signing up as a donor today.

Help us save more lives! Make a donation at GetSwabbed.org/donate. 100% of your donation is used to register new donors.
