BE THE MATCH

The cure for blood cancer is in the hands of ordinary people®.
You could be the cure.

For patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, a bone marrow or cord blood transplant may be their best or only hope for a cure. Yet 70% of patients who need a transplant to do not have a fully matched donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match® and our supporters to find a match to save their life. We also provide one-on-one support to patients and their families throughout the transplant journey.

CHEEK
SWABBING

Donors and patients are matched by their HLA type, which is different from matching blood types. A simple cheek swab can help us determine whether you’re a close bone marrow match for a patient.
