Save Lives with Be The Match
Be The Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, connects patients with blood diseases to their life-saving marrow or stem cell transplant. They do this by managing the largest and most diverse donor registry in the world, conducting research on how to improve transplant outcomes, and by providing support services to patients and their families. Anyone between the ages of 18-44 who is in good health and committed to donating to a patient in need is encouraged to join the donor registry. Joining is simple and takes less than 10 minutes – all you need to do is fill out a form and swab your cheek. Once you join, you stay on the registry until you are 61 and are called to donate only if you are the best match for a patient. For the patients we serve, transplant is their best or only chance for survival and most people don’t realize they have the power to be that patient’s cure. You can help! Click here to sign up today!
