Scientists around the world are racing to unlock cures for diseases like diabetes and
heart disease. And you can help. Your donation can provide the blood and stem cells
scientists need for their research.
Researchers using stem cells in their work are getting ever closer to exciting cures. One project nearing its final phase of testing is a cure for sickle cell disease. Scientists would remove bone marrow from a patient, fix the genetic defect in the stem cells, and reintroduce those cells to the patient to create a healthy blood system.
