Remembering Carol Ellsworth
The Ellsworth family was blessed that Carol's brother Wade was a perfect match for her. However, each year, thousands of patients need a marrow transplant, but have no donor match in their family. They depend on Be The Match® to help them find an unrelated marrow donor and receive treatment.
Be The Match relies on our support to collect contributions from community members to further its mission. Proceeds will help add potential donors to the Be The Match Registry®. We hope you'll consider making a contribution in honor of Carol Ellsworth's well-fought battle. Together we can help save lives!
What does Be The Match do?
Be The Match connects patients with life-saving marrow donors. We help save lives by:

- Supporting patients: Be The Match provides financial assistance to patients and their families to help offset costs of a marrow transplant.
- Educating doctors: Doctors turn to Be The Match to learn about transplant advances, caring for transplant patients and the importance of timely referral for transplant.
- Advancing science: Be The Match supports research to advance the science of marrow transplant, from improved donor and patient matching to improving post-transplant treatment.
