UMMC donor program seeks Perfect Match for patients
The University of Mississippi Medical Center, which has the only bone marrow transplant program in the state, will participate in the national Be The Match campaign to improve the number of African-American donors.
Patients usually find a suitable donor in someone with a similar ethnic background, but the national registry reports that just 7 percent of the nation’s 10 million registered potential bone marrow donors are African-American. Be The Match aims to improve this number through a national awareness campaign in July, which is African-American Bone Marrow Awareness Month.
