Leukemia and Other Blood Cancers
Leukemia and other blood cancers turn the white blood cells that should defend the body against disease into cancerous, mutant cells that replicate excessively without performing their disease-fighting function.
Blood cancers claim roughly 60,000 lives each year in the U.S. alone. Many of these deaths result from the shortage of matched bone marrow available for transplant. Ossium’s banked bone marrow can ameliorate the shortage by vastly increasing the supply of bone marrow donors.
