Currently, The National Marrow Donor Program does not allow men who have had sex with other men within the past 5 years to register as a potential volunteer donor. This antiquated restriction sends a misleading and discriminatory message about the health of gay men and men who have sex with other men. There are many men out there wanting to make a difference by signing up to potentially save the life of someone suffering from life-threatening cancers. Join me in signing this petition to demand The National Marrow Donor Program lift its ban on gay and MSM men donors and help increase the chances of survival for someone with cancer.

The National Marrow Donor Program
Allow gay men to register as potential volunteer donors.

Sincerely,
