I joined Team Be The Match to raise money for my marrow event because I’m passionate about saving lives!
Your gift can add new potential marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
Did you know?
A marrow transplant can be a life-saving treatment for more than 70 diseases including leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell? Seventy percent of patients do not have a matching donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match to find an unrelated marrow donor and receive the transplant they need.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. Every dollar counts. Together, we can make a difference!
It is still the reality that African Americans and people of color have the lowest odds of finding a match compared to other populations. The odds of finding a match are so low because of the degree of diversity in HLA types within the African American community, as well as an overall lower availability rate when called as a match for a patient.
