Mia Hamm, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion, has H with Delaware-based Incyte in raising awareness about bone marrow transplants.

When Hamm was 25, she lost her brother, Garrett, due to complications following a bone marrow transplant that his family hoped could cure his rare disease.

While a BMT could cure some blood cancers, serious – even potentially deadly – complications could follow, such as graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD)

Now, Hamm is partnering with Incyte in its efforts to improve the lives of patients with serious diseases, including GVHD.

Incyte’s drug research is targeting GVHD.
