All it takes is one person like you to help save a life.


Help us get one step closer to 30,000 LIFESAVERS.

Celebrate World Marrow Donor Day with Be The Match® and Mall of America®

It’s time to celebrate! Join us for World Marrow Donor Day on September 17, 2022 for a day filled with fun activities, games and a live DJ in the Mall of America Huntington Bank Rotunda. Hear from Be The Match donors and searching patients. There are so many ways you can participate and help us get to 30,000 lifesavers. The cure for blood cancer is you! 

Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer.

For patients with blood cancers like leukemia and other life-threatening diseases like sickle cell—a cure exists. You can help patients celebrate more birthdays by swabbing your cheek and joining the donor registry, fundraising or making a financial gift, or by telling others they have the power to cure blood cancer.

How you can make a difference

Join the registry

You could be someone’s only match—their only hope for a cure. It’s easy to join the Be The Match Registry. All it takes is a simple cheek swab.

Give a gift

Give a gift to help add donors to the registry, help patients with uninsured costs and fund life-saving research.

Raise funds

Participate in a fundraising event or create your own. Every dollar raised goes to supporting patients and their families.

Support the cause

Make your voice heard through legislation, volunteerism or by helping to grow the registry.
