World Marrow Donor Day: “Join the virtual global donor drive: register online, save a life!”

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 7 :: Thursday, September 17th, 2020

World Marrow Donor Day 2020 will be on Saturday, September 19, 2020. More than 50 countries around the world will participate to publicly thank donors, and to reach a large audience to recruit more.

On its fifth anniversary, the theme this year will be to “Join the virtual global donor drive: register online, save a life!” Despite millions of registered donors, 40% of patients are not able to find a matched donor. This is especially true for patients with mixed race or from ethnic minorities.

Please consider expressing your gratitude to donors and posting information on how to become a donor on websites, social media, or newsletters. The World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) provides an online tool for potential donors to find active donor registries in their countries and determine eligibility.

Thank you to all the past, current, and registered donors who selflessly chose to become a donor for someone in need.
