My name is Zoe. 

You could save a life.

Are you a match?

Zoe with Ice Cream

Zoe is 14 months old. She loves bagels and chocolate ice cream. Zoe also has an aggressive form of leukemia.  

The only cure is a blood stem cell donation.

As anyone can imagine, COVID-19 has made things even harder on the family. Safety precautions at the hospital mean new visitor restrictions. The first month in the hospital, Zoe’s dad, Theo, was barely able to see his daughter. 

Currently, Zoe does not have a donor match on the Be The Match Registry®. She’s of Eastern European descent and when it comes to matching patients with donors, ethnicity plays a key role. Zoe is most likely to match someone with a similar background.   

Thousands of blood cancer and blood disease patients like Zoe need you to sign up to literally be their cure. You can help bring patients like Zoe home.

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.
