Educating, swabbing, and running to end blood cancer!

Elizabeth Hall

“I got swabbed for bone marrow, because I knew my tissue could potentially save another’s life. Swabbing your cheek for bone marrow cells just takes a couple of seconds. Those few seconds of swabbing your cheek are so valuable to those diagnosed with blood cancers. Like anyone else, if I had a type of blood cancer, I would hope I could find a match as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, most patients do not have a bone marrow match. This is because possible matches are not in the registry (they have not been swabbed). Being able to save a life would be more than satisfying. For me, it would be the greatest fulfillment.”
