If you’re from the Caribbean and you’ve been diagnosed with leukemia, chances of you finding a match are less than 15 %, and chances of you surviving are even less.

Tammi Sulliman is joined by Jennifer Weber of the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and Tash Macfadyen from the Caribbean Bone Marrow Registry. Together they discuss the grim future that those diagnosed with leukemia will face because of a lack of a bone marrow registry. But it’s not all doom and gloom, Weber and Macfadyen reveal how we as a region can shift the odds that are currently stacked up against us to more favourable numbers.
