Be The Match

In 2011, nearly 14,000 searches were conducted through Be The Match® for a life-saving donor like you. These patients have leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases that can be treated by a bone marrow or cord blood transplant. For many of these patients, a transplant may be the best and only hope of a cure. By joining Team Be The Match, you can help make a difference in the lives of many.

Team Be The Match
Mary refers to her donor as
“her saving angel.”

Mary was a typical teenager, busy with cheerleading, dance, theater and gymnastics — until she was diagnosed with aplastic anemia when she was only 18. Although she had a successful bone marrow transplant, the early recovery was difficult. While confined to the hospital, she watched sadly as her long hair fell out. Now 20, Mary is healthy and hopeful about the future. She plans to complete high school and become an actress, a model or a nurse.

With your help, we can continue to provide transplants, resources and support to make stories like Mary’s and Isaiah’s possible. Your contributions and involvement in Team Be The Match helps patient’s receive the transplants they need and the support they deserve to help them better cope with their treatment and recovery.
