McKesson Marrow Drive

This year, 20,000 Americans need a marrow transplant. McKesson employees are encouraging family and friends to join the marrow registry – and help save lives.

You Could Save a Life

This year, 20,000 Americans will face the need for a marrow transplant. For patients fighting blood cancers and other diseases, a transplant can be life-saving. But only 30% of patients can find a marrow donor in their families. The other 70% must turn to the marrow registry.

The registry urgently needs more donors – especially those from diverse backgrounds. The McKesson Foundation is proud to sponsor the McKesson Marrow Drive as part of our commitment to fighting cancer.

Join the Marrow Drive

Are you interested in joining the registry? It just takes a quick cheek swab and a brief health history to sign up. Go to to learn more about marrow donation and order your swab kit – free of charge to McKesson employees, family and friends.
