To join The HLA Registry you must:
  • be between 18 and 60 years of age and in good health
  • consent to giving a blood sample for tissue typing and allow entry of your genetic and biographic information in the National Marrow Donor Program registry of potential donors. 
By registering you make yourself available to help when needed. If you match a patient in need we will call you. The chance of being called upon to actually donate is close to zero. Very few people share your exact tissue type. Unless one of them is sick with leukemia or another deadly blood disorder we will not call you. Yet every person who registers as a volunteer marrow donor increases the chance that patients will find the life saving matches they need. With six million registered donors available, patients enjoy a 70 percent chance of finding donors who can save their lives.
