Growing the registry to find a match for every patient 

For people with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant may be their only hope for a cure. But they need donors who are a close match.

Millions have joined the Be The Match Registry® , yet many patients still can’t find a match – especially patients from some ethnic groups that have more complex tissue types than others. Your contributions, along with funding from the Congress through the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program and National Cord Blood Inventory, help us recruit the ethnically diverse donors patients need to increase the likelihood that they will find a match.

Your contributions are critical to our efforts

You can help us bring hope to every family. Your financial gift delivers cures to blood cancer patients. Every $100 raised adds potential marrow donors to the Be The Match Registry, helps more patients afford transplant and funds life-saving research.

Corporations have the unique ability to reach their employees and the public with our message and to cover the costs of growing the Be The Match Registry. In fact, individuals recruited through corporate partnerships are among the most committed in the world. And the growing ethnic diversity of the U.S. workforce helps us meet the needs of patients from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

Help us raise funds to make life-saving transplants a reality for all patients.
