Diagnosed with leukemia in 1991, Jay Feinberg was told he would need a bone marrow transplant to survive, but there was no matching donor for him in the registry. His loving and persistent family would not take “no” for an answer! They organized an international grassroots campaign to find his donor. Over 60,000 people were tested and joined the registry, providing matches for hundreds of other patients – but not Jay. As his health was failing, one last hopeful drive was held and the last person tested turned out to be Jay’s match. He received a successful transplant, and to pay it forward, founded the Gift of Life Marrow Registry. Now celebrating its 26th anniversary, Gift of Life has 285,000+ registered volunteer donors and 3,224 lives saved…and, so much more to do to help those suffering from Blood Cancer and other curable diseases like Sickle Cell disease. Individuals can join the registry anytime after their 18th birthday...and since you can stay in the registry until you are 61- High School seniors are very important.
