Marrow Power works with families to publicize the need for people to come forward to sign up as voluntary marrow donors. Because marrow typing is based on DNA, it is extremely difficult to find an unrelated marrow match outside a persons immediate family. Even though more than 4 million people are currently registered on marrow donor registries worldwide, thousands of people die each year for lack of a genetically compatible, living marrow donor. As a result, marrow donor drives must be conducted on an ongoing basis to boost the number of prospective marrow donors who can save anothers life. Publicity in local and regional newspapers calls attention to upcoming marrow donor drives, as do interviews on radio and TV. We also help with flyers to be distributed near the site of a marrow donor drive and e-mailed to interested prospective donors.


Marrow Power works closely with civic and community groups, colleges and universities, and houses of worship to help people with leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, myeloma, and other potentially fatal blood cancers. These groups have hosted and sponsored marrow donor drives, marshaling volunteers to make these drives extremely successful. Among the organizations teaming up with Marrow Power have been:
