When Jay Feinberg was diagnosed with leukemia in his 20s, he needed a bone marrow transplant to survive. After learning that none of his family members were good matches, his doctor searched a donor registry.
Still, he found no matches.
Even though his doctor told him to start preparing a bucket list, Feinberg knew there had to be a better way to find an appropriate donor.
Together with his friends, he tirelessly searched for matches, organizing 250 donation drives and testing 60,000 potential donors. They finally found a match—and 23 years later, Feinberg is still cancer-free.
This lengthy process inspired Feinberg to found The Gift of Life Marrow Registry. Tune in to learn more about this organization, like how it dramatically cuts transplant wait times for critically ill people and how you can become a potential donor.
