Be The Match® delivers cures for blood cancers.
For patients with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma or other life-threating 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. 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.
2. Grow the registry to create more matches.
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. 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.
Join our quest to help every patient get the marrow transplant they need. How will you help?
