We're working with the Graduate Student Organization at University of Hawaii at Manoa today. We'll be doing a drive for Dr. Tracy Jalbuena of Rockport Maine. She is devoted wife, mother of two and ER physician. She desperately needs to find a matching donor to save her life! Tracy has been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, an agressive blood cancer. She is Filipino, German and Irish. We'll be at the Campus Center from 2pm to 4pm. Please help! #bonemarrowhawaii #bethematch

The Facts

Every year, more than 12,000 patients in the U.S. are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases such as leukemia or lymphoma for which a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant from an unrelated donor may be their best or only hope of a cure.

About 70 percent of patients in need of a transplant do not have a matching donor in their family. They depend on the Be The Match Registry to find an unrelated donor or umbilical cord blood unit.

How a Match is Found

Matches are found with those of the same ethnic backgrounds, so Hawaii residents have great potential in helping not only patients from Hawaii, but from all over the world. Only 1 out of every 540 registered donors will actually be chosen as a match and be asked to donate.

You may be the ONLY one to save a person’s life! Take your first step by joining the bone marrow registry.
