  • 1. 1000 Cranes for HOPE
    • National APAMSA Bone Marrow Campaign
  • 2. Just the facts
    • NMDP registry: 7 million total
            • Caucasian: 73%
            • Hispanic/Latino: 10%
            • African American: 8%
            • Asian/API: 7%
            • Multi Race: 3%
            • American Indian: 1%
    • 75% of Asian/API patients who need a bone marrow transplant do NOT get a lifesaving transplant

    • Live in the United States.
    • Have they already joined?
  • 5. Committed potential donor
    • We are responsible for making sure that the potential donor is fully committed at registration .
    • Registrants who match and later refuse to donate do MORE HARM than good for the patients and their families.
  • 6. INFORM the potential donor
    • The potential donor must understand the entire process. They must be aware of:
    • What it means to register
    • How long they will be listed in the registry
    • Understanding what will happen if they match
    • Knowing the 2 ways to donate
    • Knowing their obligations at the time of match
  • 7. Donor is unsure?
    • Try to address any and all of the donor’s questions or issues with the process.
    • Refer them to or call 1 (800) MARROW2 for available materials in Chinese, Korean, Tagalog, Spanish, and Vietnamese .
    • Remind the potential donor that they have many opportunities to join the registry when they feel ready .
    • AGAIN, it is important that we register committed donors!
  • 8. Begin Registration Process
    • Have the potential donor read the INSERT in the consent form.
    • Have a representative be present to answer any questions they may have.
