Join the Marrow Registry

Every year, thousands of patients with blood cancer, sickle cell, and 70 other life-threatening diseases search the Gift of Life Marrow Registry to find a matching bone marrow donor.

You may be the life-saving match for a searching patient.

Who Can Join?

Anyone between the ages of 18 and 35 can join the registry at no cost.

Donors between the ages of 36 and 60 may still join the registry but will need to cover the $60 cost of the HLA test.

All donors will remain on the registry until their 61st birthday unless medically deferred or withdrawn by request.
