Four-year-old Ayden’s favorite thing to do is play in the park. But, when he’s at the hospital receiving chemotherapy for his B-cell (ALL) Leukemia, Ayden plays his Nintendo Switch––his favorite character is Sonic the Hedgehog.

Ayden and his family’s lives were turned upside down by his diagnosis. Throughout the past year, Ayden has undergone treatments and procedures for his illness with no luck yet. His family now hopes that Ayden can find a stem cell or bone marrow donor through Be The Match.

You have the power to turn Ayden and his family’s lives around. This holiday season, you can join the Be The Match Registry® and you may give a patient like Ayden another chance at life.

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.
