The Cause: About Be The Match
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:
- 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
- Grow the national 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.
With nearly 30 years of experience, we are the trusted leaders in advancing
the science of transplant. Our dedicated research program, CIBMTR, has over 200
research studies in progress to improve transplant outcomes, reduce
complications, treat more diseases and provide a cure to more patients.

the marrow transplant they need. How will you help?
