BioBridge Global offers many ways to participate in our life-saving mission. As a nonprofit organization, BioBridge Global and its subsidiaries South Texas Blood & Tissue Center, QualTex Laboratories, GenCure and The Blood & Tissue Center Foundation rely on generous donations from the community to assist patients in need.
People suffering from leukemia or other life-threatening blood diseases often need a bone marrow/stem cell transplant to survive. Signing up for the Be The Match Registry simply means you are making yourself available to these patients who might one day need you. Registering only takes about 10 minutes and consists of paper work and a cheek swab. We invite your company or organization to also consider sponsoring a marrow registration drive to help us strengthen the chances that a patient will find their ideal match in their time of need.
Cord blood is a rich source of stem cells and can be used as an alternative to bone marrow for treating many life-threatening diseases. Mothers may donate their umbilical cord blood to the Texas Cord Blood Bank. Registration is easy and available at any of our participating hospitals across Texas.
The mission of The Blood & Tissue Center Foundation is to serve as an advocate to increase community awareness and develop financial and other resources in support of BBG and its subsidiaries.
