Make the choice. Be the cure. Discover gratitude like nothing else on earth.
We've connected more than 111,000 patients with blood stem cell donors. Each match helps write a better future.
The Power of Diversity
Some ethnic groups have more complex tissue types than others, so a patient’s ethnic background affects how likely they are to find a match. The more people we have on the registry, the better chance someone has. You can rewrite the script for patients in need.

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.
