Each year thousands of women, men and children get life-threatening diseases like leukemia, Hodgkin's Disease and lymphoma. Many will require a bone marrow transplant from a matched donor. Only about 30% will find find a match in their family. Most patients depend on Be The Match to help them find an unrelated donor.
The Michigan Team for Be The Match and local Michiganders need your help! By making a financial contribution through this link, you will make it possible to add new donors from this area at no cost. The typing process necessary to register a new donor can be costly and with only limited funds available, we are unable to offer no cost testing to all of the incredible residents of Michigan who want to help....who are willing to give someone a second chance at life. We understand the economy in Michigan is suffering, but that means there is an even greater need to offer no cost typing to our residents. Please help us make this possible.
Your contributions will be retained in Michigan and every penny will be used to cover the typing costs of its residents. Be the Match is a non profit 501c(3) organization so your donations are considered tax deductible. You can easily make your contribution through the "Make a Donation" button on the right.
