Be the Match - Bone Marrow Match Registry

Be the MatchYou could be the one to save a life! Imagine that someone in your family needed help to survive and no one came to their aid.  For many, this nightmare is a reality but you have the power to make a difference.   Every year, more than 10,000 patients in the U.S. are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases such as leukemia or lymphoma, and their best or only hope of a cure is a transplant from an unrelated adult donor.

You can make a difference by joining the Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry.  It’s easy to do, only takes about 5 minutes.  Just complete a simple form and swab your cheeks.  When you join the Be The Match Registry, you become part of every patient’s search for a donor. 

For more information and to sign up for the registry, join us at the blood drive, or join online. You have the power to heal, the power to save a life. Take the first step. Join the registry.
