You Could Be The MatchMany African Americans have a life-threatening blood disease such as leukemia or sickle cell anemia. The only hope is a stem cell/marrow transplant. African Americans have the lowest odds of receiving transplants of any race due to the low number on the Be The Match Registry.

Kamryn, 9 years old, has sickle cell disease & needs a transplant for a cure. She and Chelsea Washington, OKC FOX 25 TV, urge you to party with us by filling out the health info and swabbing your cheek!

For more SWAB PARTY information, call Marcikus at 593-3895 or Jonell at 684-0336.

    FEEL GOOD. GIVE GLOBALLY.

    Donate now and support the Global Blood Fund.  Just forgo your donor recognition item offered in appreciation for your donation.  In turn, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary contribution of similar value to support the Global Blood Fund. 

    In this way, donors can doubly give - both by donating life-saving blood used locally, and by assisting blood centers in developing countries with supplies.

    Support has been provided to blood centers in countries such as Kenya, Zimbabwe, Haiti, Mexico, Japan, Georgia and Armenia.

    FEEL ESSENTIAL

    It is critical that O-negative donors donate regularly since only 9% of the population has this blood type, and can only receive this same blood type.

    Having O-negative blood available is vital because it can be used by any person in the 140 medical facilities we serve who may be in urgent need but whose blood type hasn’t yet been identified.

    Imagine if a family member, friend or co-worker was in urgent need of blood. Donating every 56 days, and encouraging others with O-negative blood type to do the same, ensures your loved ones would receive the life-saving blood when they need it.
