Be The Match South Central
Be The Match Foundation® supports the National Marrow Donor Program®. Together, we help thousands of patients who have been diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, and can only be treated with a marrow or cord blood transplant, find a donor and receive the life-saving treatment they need. Each year, 10,000 patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases discover they need a marrow or cord blood transplant but have no donor match in their family. Only half receive the transplant they need. For some, their search for an unrelated marrow donor yields no match. We need more people of all backgrounds to join Be The Match Registry®. For others, it is a financial issue. Too many patients face staggering treatment costs that keep a transplant out of reach. And while medical advances have made transplants available to more patients, there is more research to be done. Be The Match Foundation works with compassionate individuals, families, corporations, and foundations to raise funds to support three crucial areas: • Adding more potential donors to the Be The Match Registry, increasing the chances that more patients find their match. • Providing financial assistance for patients who need help with uninsured transplant costs. • Funding transplant research to help more patients live longer and healthier lives.
