Are you -- or is someone you know -- in need of a marrow transplant?
Or do you want to know what you can do to help patients in need of a bone marrow donation?
Seventy percent of patients who have no donor in their family must rely on the registry to find an unrelated marrow donor. The Be The Match office at City of Hope has information about ways you can help add life-saving marrow donors to the registry. The more donors we add, the more lives we can save.
Operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, our Be The Match Registry finds matches for bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants for patients suffering from leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening blood diseases.

Interested in other ways you can volunteer, besides joining the registry? We can always use a helping hand to support our efforts, such as...
Hosting a marrow drive at your home, church, school or in your community to add more donors to the registry.
Joining our fundraising efforts. It costs the Be The Match Registry $100 to add each new registry member, so we're always looking for support to help expand our program.
