We turned to donors for input as we revised our donor guide, You’re a Match:
- In four cities, we held two focus groups, one of donors and one of potential donors who’d gone in for additional testing but were not called to donate. The focus group participants provided feedback on our existing educational materials and shared their experiences working with us.
- More than 20 donors were interviewed by phone about their donation experience, and their stories are appearing in the new You’re a Match guide, the Marrow Connection registry member enewsletter and other materials.
- Seven donors shared their donation experiences on video. Some of those videos appear in our new online course, and more will be posted on our website in coming months.
- Many donors agreed to share photos taken during their donations, and some of those appear in the donor guide as well.
