Be Marsha's Match

You could save a life! Join the National Bone Marrow Registry. It takes just a cheek swab to join.

In 2016, Marsha Krone, a St. Jude Catholic Church parishioner and St. Jude Catholic School pre-K teacher, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone marrow cancer. Despite millions of donors being listed on the bone marrow registry, Marsha has yet to find her match.

In fact, she was informed she has less than a 1% change of ever finding a perfect match.

Please sign-up to be a bone marrow donor. Your donation may just be the "match" Marsha needs. Donors ages 18 to 44 years old in general good health are critically needed.
