All members of the community are encouraged to participate in the drive. It’s fast and painless, and although there is no cost for a volunteer to join, there is a $54 lab processing fee for each kit. Gift of Life relies on the generosity of donations to help offset these costs. If you are between the ages of 18 and 60 and in general good health, you are eligible to be screened and join the worldwide registry for patients in need. A simple swab from the inside of your cheek is all it takes to determine if you are a match.
