Be The Match.
YOU can help
Join the registry online at http://join.bethematch.org/teamanthony
Join the registry. A simple cheek swab is all that is needed to determine if you could be the one to save one of the thousands of patients in need of a bone marrow transplant. We are seeking 18-44 year olds, in good health, that are willing to donate to any one in need to join the Be The Match Registry. By becoming a member of the Registry, you could be a match for a patient in critical need—maybe even the only person who could save a patient’s life. Review the guidelines for joining Be The Match at http://j.mp/JoinBTM
- Doctors request donors in the 18-44 age group more than 90% of the time. Research shows that cells from younger donors provide the greatest chance for transplant success. As a non-profit, Be The Match must use the funds received wisely and focuses on adding registry members most likely to donate to help save the most lives. If you are ages 18-44, it is free to join Be The Match online or in person.
- Donors between the ages of 45 and 60, must join the registry online at http://join.bethematch.org/TeamAnthony required to make a $100 tax-deductible payment to cover the cost of genetic testing.
Volunteer. With your help, we can do even more to tell people about Be The Match, raise funds at events and add potential donors to the registry. Your time has a real impact on the lives of patients and their families. Be The Match has volunteer opportunities no matter where you live, what your skills and interests may be, or how much time you can offer.
If you are insterested in volunteering, contact Jennifer Eisenbud Sawle, Be The Match Community Rep at Jennifer.Sawle@nmdp.org or 510-427-9336.
Give. Please make a financial contribution to Be The Match. We rely on contributions from community members to further our mission.
