(AURN) -- July is African-American Bone Marrow Awareness Month and BETHEMATCH.org is encouraging the black community to join the Be The Match Registry®, the world’s largest registry of potential bone marrow donors.  

Be The Match connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. African American patients in need of a bone marrow transplant are nearly 30% less likely to find a potentially life-saving bone marrow donor compared to whites.
