OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network is responsible for finding and matching volunteer donors for patients who require stem cell transplants. Fewer than 30 per cent of patients who need stem cell transplants find a compatible donor within their own families. The rest rely on those who have volunteered to donate stem cells to anyone in need.

Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation: Gift of Life has been a leader in the world of donor registries. It was the first to utilize bloodless (buccal swab) testing routinely at donor recruitment drives.

Recruitment groups are welcome to establish funds with Gift of Life. When contributions are received at Gift of Life in support of a particular group, they will be credited to the fund and used for the purpose of underwriting the cost of the group's testing. Please read how to donate on behalf of the Grossman's.

It is important that the group notify their constituents to include the group name either in the memo section of the check or in a letter accompanying the check. If the contribution is made online at, a notation can be made in the comments field or fund drop-down list box. Gift of Life will issue tax receipts for contributions received from U.S. and Canadian contributors."
