We're joining together to raise money for Be The Match because we're passionate about saving lives!
NetApp has been a valuable, long-term partner of Be The Match, adding 409 potential life-saving members to the Registry and donating $70,000 to help Be The Match patients since 2009.
In 2020 the Be The Match patient assistance program provided 2,075 families with financial assistance totaling $4.8 Million. As a direct result of the ongoing pandemic, the number of philanthropic grants Be The Match has given to patients in 2021 has increased 86% over the prior year. For these patients, these funds are crucial to their transplant journey.
Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. The money raised will help add new potential blood stem cell donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs, and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes. Every dollar counts.
About Be The Match
Thousands of people are diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers and diseases like leukemia and sickle cell. They depend on Be The Match and our supporters to find a match to save their life.
As the global leader in blood stem cell transplantation, we connect the world’s largest and most diverse registry of donors with patients who are their genetic match. 30% of patients needing a transplant have a match within their family. The other 70% of patients turn to us for help.
Eliminating the health disparity
Patients are more likely to match with someone of their same ethnicity, which is why it is crucial to grow and diversify the Registry. Thousands of patients each year are still searching for their match. By fundraising and adding more people to the Registry, we can increase the odds and make sure every patient has an equal chance at finding their life-saving donor.
And if you are between the ages of 18 and 40, you can always join the Registry for free, potentially saving someone’s life. Visit join.bethematch.org/NETAPP to join today!
