""Thank You!"" These two small words will never fully convey the significant impact Ingo has made on Elizabeth, Kathryn, and their entire family''s lives. After 26 years of being on Germany''s registry, Ingo received the call that he was a match to donate to not one but two patients: twin sisters. He would go on to donate and ultimately save both Elizabeth and Kathryn''s lives. He was their miracle, their life-saving match. As World Marrow Donor Day approaches on Sept. 16, we want to say thank you. Not only to Ingo, but to all of those who have donated and are on the registry in hopes of one day donating. Thank you! #bethematch #jointheregistry

Did you know that having mixed heritage can make it more difficult to find a match? For Krissy, her Japanese and Caucasian background made her search for a perfect match more challenging. When Krissy was 25, she was diagnosed with a blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome or pre-leukemia. It was determined that the best cure would be a marrow transplant, so she and her family turned to the registry to find a donor. For Krissy and patients like her, the lack of diversity on our registry decreases their chances of finding the perfect match. Spread the word by encouraging your friends and family to join the registry today! Follow the link in our bio to join! #teamkrissy #bethematch #savealife #mixedmatch
