The Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program at Mayo Clinic and Phoenix Children’s Hospital will host the National Marrow Donor Program’s Be The Match: MARROWTHON Donor Recruitment Campaign on July 9 at two Valley locations.

According to the Be The Match Marrow Registry, every year, more than 10,000 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.

Patients are most likely to match donors of their same race and ethnicity. If more people joined the Marrow Registry, more patients would find a donor.

The drive will take place at three locations on July 9 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, 1919 E. Thomas Road in Phoenix in the East Building Lobby.

The other is from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mayo Clinic Hospital, 5777 E. Mayo Blvd. in Phoenix in Conference Room 1-212.

For more information about the Marrow Donor Recruitment Campaign, call (480) 342-0564 at Mayo Clinic or call (602) 933-0824 at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, or visit
