Powering the Possibility

When it comes to Powering the Possibility, we know we can’t do it alone. It takes patients, donors, Network partners, supporters, volunteers and our dedicated employees. With a team this strong, we know that no matter what life throws at us, together, anything’s possible.

We hope you’ll join us on this incredible journey.

About Be The Match

Be The Match is a global leader working every day to save lives through cellular therapy. For people with life-threatening blood cancers—like leukemia and lymphoma—or other blood disorders like sickle cell, a cure exists. Be The Match connects patients with a matching donor for a life-saving blood stem cell transplant. The Be The Match Registry is the most diverse registry in the world and includes both adult donors willing to donate to a stranger in need and stored cord blood units. In addition, Be The Match provides patients and their families one-on-one support, education, and guidance before, during and after transplant. Be The Match is also a global leader in research through the CIBMTR® (Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research®)—a collaboration with Medical College of Wisconsin, investing in and managing research studies that improve patient outcomes and advance the future of care.
