Noah needs your help

Baby Noah laying down and smiling

At just 4-months-old, baby Noah is a beautiful bundle of smiles and curious glances. Shortly after birth, however, he was diagnosed with an incredibly rare, life-threatening immunodeficiency disease. Just leaving the house puts him at risk of catching a cold, which his body has a hard time fighting off.

In order to be cured, Noah needs a stem cell donation from an unrelated donor. But he doesn’t have any full matches on the Be The Match Registry®.

Noah’s biracial ethnicity also makes this more difficult. Patients are much more likely to match with donors who share their ethnic background. Unfortunately, a racial disparity on the registry exists.

Thousands of patients like Noah are still searching for their match. By signing up today, you could be their cure!

About Be The Match®

For people with life-threatening blood cancers—like leukemia and lymphoma—or other diseases, a cure exists. Be The Match connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. People can contribute to the cure as a member of the Be The Match Registry®, financial contributor or volunteer. Be The Match provides patients and their families one-on-one support, education, and guidance before, during and after transplant. ​ Be The Match is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), a nonprofit organization that matches patients with donors, educates health care professionals and conducts research through its research program, CIBMTR® (Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research®), so more lives can be saved. To learn more about the cure, visit BeTheMatch.org or call 1 (800) MARROW-2.
