A national bone-marrow donation registry says the rate of new sign-ups has more than doubled since Robin Roberts of “Good Morning America” announced that she will be needing a transplant.
Jeffrey Chell, CEO of the registry Be the Match, said some 15,000 people had registered since Roberts announced her diagnosis June 11. That’s 11,200 more registrants than it would normally receive in that period, Chell said.
