Announcing the launch of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Member Enrollment Program
Our new program addresses the need of finding stem cell donors for patients of Asian American and Pacific Islander ancestry. With over 30 years of experience, we are committed to making sure every patient finds a blood stem cell donor match no matter their ethnic background. Please join us in our mission to save lives.
Only 9% of potential donors on the Be The Match Registry identify as Asian.
Patients of Asian and Pacific Islander ancestry desperately need more representation on the registry.
