One of our Georgia bankruptcy lawyers is proud to say that she has registered to be a bone marrow donor. She’s happy to become a part of a growing list of generous individuals who have pledged to help people with blood cancer.
As a bankruptcy attorney, Elizabeth Mitchell has devoted her waking hours to helping people rebuild their lives as they walk through tough circumstances. Her passion for helping others extends far beyond the confines of her legal office: she has recently joined the bone marrow donor registry at Be the Match, putting her on the largest list of potential marrow donors from all over the world.
Speaking about her registration, Elizabeth said, “As the daughter of a liver transplant recipient, I'm excited to be a part of this life-saving organization."
Be the Match is a non-profit organization operated by the National Marrow Donor Program®, which helps the victims of blood cancers (including leukemia or lymphoma) by conducting life-saving research, creating a registry to match patients with eligible donors, and facilitating bone marrow transplants for children and adults. These are only a few of the vital services Be the Match provides.
Registration is one of the simplest and best ways an individual can help save a life. The registry currently includes over 13 million individuals and 225,000 cord blood donations. Every person who joins increases the likelihood that a person with leukemia or lymphoma will find a donor who has the genetic makeup to help them.
