Be 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.
Funds raised for Be the Match support three key areas.
1. 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 well.
2. 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.
3. Fund life-saving research.
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.
