You've heard of the "Be the Match" program and people have come out in droves to support Sally-Ann Roberts’ sister Robin Roberts by joining the national marrow donor program.
Now another group is in town for Essence Fest to recruit people in their fight to "Delete Blood Cancer."
Jennifer Daniel, Delete Blood Cancer's donor recruiter, and Dr. Renee Hickson of Tulane University spoke on the Eyewitness Morning News on Friday to discuss the program.
You can find Delete Blood Cancer through Sunday at the Community Expo of the Essence Festival. The swab stations are located at booths 33 and 34 from 9:30 in the morning to six o'clock each day.
For more information, you can go to their website.
