(WTNH)– Marrow donor Chris Gennaro attended a Legislative Day on behalf of Be The Match on March 3.

On March 3, blood cancer patients and marrow advocates visited Washington, D.C. with a two-fold request for Congress: Protect access to life-saving bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplants, and continue to provide critically important federal funding for programs that will help more Americans survive blood cancers and other diseases.

Be The Match is the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on saving lives through bone marrow and cord blood transplantation
