Be The Match® delivers cures for blood cancers and blood diseases.
For patients with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma or other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists – a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant. We lead the fight to advance the science of transplant, support patients at every step of their journey and empower people to give the greatest gift of all – the gift of life.
Donations to Be The Match support three key areas:
- Help patients overcome financial barriers to transplant.
Because insurance doesn’t cover all the costs of a transplant, many families are not able to afford treatment. We provide vital funds to help families focus on what matters most – getting well.
- Grow the registry to create more matches.
Be The Match operates the most diverse marrow registry in the world. Still, many patients can’t find a match. We focus our recruiting efforts on healthy, diverse potential blood stem cell donors between the ages of 18-40 who provide the greatest chance for a successful transplant. Your contributions add more people to the registry who are committed to saving a life.
- Fund life-saving research.
With nearly 30 years of experience, we are the trusted leaders in advancing the science of transplant. Our dedicated research program, CIBMTR® (Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research®), has over 250 research studies in progress to improve transplant outcomes, reduce complications, treat more diseases and provide a cure to more patients.
