Be The Match Registry

Organization Description: 

Be The Match offers people the unique opportunity to help a patient by donating bone marrow or umbilical cord blood. Thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases depend on the Be The Match Registry to find a match.

A patient's doctor can contact the NMDP to search the Be The Match Registry and other registries worldwide to access more than 12 million donors and 300,000 umbilical cord blood units.

Many have already stepped forward -- if you've already joined the NMDP Registry, you are a member of the Be The Match Registry and do not need to join again.

Many more are needed. The more people who join our Be The Match community, the more patients we will help -- together.

Mission Statement: 

Creating connections. Saving lives.

The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) and our Be The Match Foundation SM are nonprofit organizations dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it.

Our mission

Every year, thousands of people of all ages are diagnosed with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases. Many of them will die unless they get a bone marrow or cord blood transplant from a matching donor. Seventy percent of people do not have a donor in their family and depend on our Be The Match Registry SM to find a match to save their life.
