Be the Match

Soooo Happy that Robin Roberts was back at Good Morning America this morning... So great to see that beautiful smile in the morning. She truly is an inspiration. If you want to help save someone's life visit Be the Match and help save a life today!!!!

What is Be the Match you ask?

Be The Match®, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), a nonprofit organization, is the global leader in providing bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplants to patients in need. As Be The Match, we operate the Be The Match Registry®, the world's largest listing of potential marrow donors and donated cord blood units.
A patient's doctor can search our Be The Match Registry and other registries worldwide to access more than 18.5 million donors and more than 590,000 cord blood units.
Be The Match offers people the unique opportunity to help a patient by donating bone marrow or umbilical cord blood. Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases depend on Be The Match to find a match.
We also provide support and resources to transplant patients, educate health care professionals, and conduct research through our research arm, the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research® (CIBMTR), so more lives can be saved.
