Mixed Marrow began in 2009 in response for the need for a multiethnic-specific outreach due to the lack of public knowledge and registered donors.
Mixed Marrow is dedicated to finding bone marrow and blood cell donors to patients of multiethnic descent. Our outreach concentrates on this minority due to the desperate need for registered donors as well as the lack of public knowledge regarding this topic.
We are dedicated to educating the multiethnic community through multimedia tools such as internet, video, and photography and hosting drives to register donors.
Mixed Marrow recruits donors for Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M), a recruitment center for the Be The Match Registry. We are a community recruitment partner for Be The Match, the national US registry.
In addition to marrow donation, Mixed Marrow also strives to spread awareness about cord blood donation. Over 90% of umbilical cords are thrown away in medical waste when they could be potential lifesavers carrying valuable stem cells that can cure diseases like leukemia.
Mixed Marrow also demands better statistical collection and representation of mixed race people in medical research.
