About Be The Match

Be The Match® delivers cures for blood cancers.

For patients with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma or other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists – a marrow 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.

Your gift to Be The Match® supports three key areas:

  1. Patient assistance funds

    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

  2. Grows the registry

    Be The Match operates the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. Still, many patients can’t find a match. We focus our recruiting efforts on healthy, diverse potential marrow donors age 18–44 who provide the greatest chance for a successful transplant. Your contributions add more people to the registry who are committed to saving a life.

  3. Funds life-saving research

    With more than 30 years of experience, we are the trusted leaders in advancing the science of transplant. Our dedicated research team leads cutting-edge studies to improve survival rates, use transplant for other rare diseases, combat post-transplant infections and provide a cure to more patients.

Join our quest to help every patient get the marrow transplant they need. How will you help?
