Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma are in need of a life-saving bone marrow or cord blood transplant. But many patients may face barriers that could keep them from getting a transplant. Your financial gift can help patients afford transplant, find a matching donor and have a successful transplant outcome. Your gift saves lives.
Help patients win the financial struggle
We raise funds to help patients receive the life-saving transplant they need. Since insurance doesn’t cover all the costs that come with a transplant many families are not able to afford treatment. But there is hope. And it comes from people like you.
Bryson, bone marrow transplant recipient, with his mother
“I appreciate the financial help not only for our family, but for other families going through transplant. Every dollar counts. Every dollar makes a difference.” - Marcy, Bryson’s Mother
Grow our registry to create more matches
A transplant may be a patient’s only hope for a cure. But patients need donors who are a close match. While millions have joined Be The Match Registry®, many patients still can’t find a match, particularly those with diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. Your contributions help us recruit and add more potential donors to the registry so transplants can become a reality for all patients.
Skye, two-time transplant recipient, with her parents and donors Hayden and Ricky
“When we got the news that our daughter had leukemia it was absolutely heartbreaking. We were just hoping that there was somebody out there that would be a perfect match who would help her and save her life. We are just so grateful for people like Hayden and Ricky who get on the registry and who say yes.” -Talia, Skye’s Mother
Support life-saving research
Thanks to cutting-edge medical research, bone marrow transplant has been saving lives for more than 30 years. Researchers continue the quest to improve survival rates, use transplant as a treatment for other rare diseases and combat post-transplant infections. Your investment in research helps fund clinical trials and observational studies that are critical to healing more patients.
Finn, bone marrow transplant recipient
"As the father of a Japanese American child, I know it’s difficult to find donor matches for patients of diverse ethnic backgrounds. Finn is alive today because of genetics and ancestry research that helped him find his life-saving match." -Jiro, Finn’s Father
Help save even more lives—in México
As part of our mission to save more lives, Be The Match® has recently expanded into México. With your financial gift to Be the Match® Mexico, you can help us save more lives through cellular therapy by improving donor availability and removing barriers to transplant for patients of Latino descent.
Ramon, bone marrow transplant recipient
“Be The Match® Mexico not only helped Ramon find his match and receive his transplant, but they also supported us financially to cover part of the expenses that such a procedure represents.” - Betzaida, Ramon’s Mother
