Rex “Swabs” for Life - Marrow Transplant Donor Drive

Become a donor and save a life.

Rex is partnering with Be The Match® to host a marrow transplant donor drive. Be The Match is a national program dedicated to recruiting donors who can provide life-saving marrow transplants to leukemia patients and others in need. Each year, 10,000 patients need a transplant. Only about half receive one.

It only takes a simple cheek swab to find out if you are a match! Together we have the potential to truly make a difference in the lives of thousands of men, women and children in need of a life-saving transplant.

During the drive, you will fill out a consent form and have the inside of your cheek swabbed to have your tissue type tested. This will determine if you are a match.
