International nonprofit DKMS is holding a casting call for heroes at Wizard World Philadelphia, May 17th to the 20th, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. With thousands of comic book, television, film, celebrity, and cosplay lovers heading to Philadelphia to celebrate their favorite fictional superheroes, DKMS will offer the opportunity for attendees to become real-life heroes - starting with a simple cheek swab to join the bone marrow registry.

Every three minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer or blood disorder in the U.S. For many patients, a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant is the best chance at survival. 70 percent of patients must rely on an unrelated stranger who is virtually their genetic twin to donate. Unfortunately, less than half of those seeking a transplant will find a match. DKMS hopes to change those odds!
