About the marrow drive

GenCure and The University of Texas at San Antonio are collaborating for this exciting event to engage and educate students on the impact of becoming a lifesaving marrow donor. GenCure's Marrow Donor Program will be set up at locations across campus (see below) explaining the donation process and signing potential donors to the national marrow donor registry, Be The Match. All it takes is five minutes of your time and a simple cheek swab!
