Connecting patients with life-saving bone marrow donors

Every 3 to 4 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Patients are searching for a cure. It could be you.

Our partnerships with international and cooperative registries provide doctors with access to more than 41 million potential donors and nearly 811,000 cord blood units worldwide.

We need donors like you to help be the cure

Seventy percent of all patients who need a transplant don’t have a fully matched donor in their family. A patient’s likelihood of finding a matching donor on the registry is estimated to range from 29-79%, depending on ethnic background. Our donor and cord blood registries can only continue to grow if people like you sign up to become a member of the registry or donate your baby’s umbilical cord blood. Because of you, more patients around the world will be able to receive a life-saving transplant. 

You can make a difference – whether through bone marrow donation, giving a financial gift or volunteering – and turn the impossible into the achievable for a patient in need of a cure. 

You never know when you could be the cure. Join the NMDP Registry today.
