HOW STBTC & GENCURE ARE JUMPING IN TO HELP
Giving blood means bridging the space between two lives. One is healthy, vibrant and generous. The other is experiencing illness, trauma and uncertainty. Making a blood donation is one of the most intimate and priceless gifts one can give and The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) is honored to be the bridge between those two lives.
How do you prep for blood donation? Find out here.
GenCure, a partner and authorized donor center of the Be The Match Program (National Marrow Donor Registry), coordinates donor registration, marrow donation and search activities providing donor suitability, management, collection and processing of stem cells for patients hoping for a cure. Its marrow donor program hosts marrow registration drives and special events across South Texas to find donors for patients like Nattalie and promote awareness about the urgent need for more potential donors.
