Mission Statement

Be The Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), is a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to helping every patient get the life-saving transplant they need. As trusted leaders in advancing treatments for those facing life-threatening blood cancers, we provide the ground-breaking research, innovative technologies, patient support and education that save lives.

Description

Be The Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, connects patients with blood diseases to their life-saving marrow or stem cell transplant. We do this by managing the largest and most diverse donor registry in the world, conducting research on how to improve transplant outcomes, and by providing support services to patients and their families. Anyone between the ages of 18-44 who is in good health and committed to donating to a patient in need is encouraged to join the donor registry. Joining is simple and takes less than 10 minutes - all you need to do is fill out a form and swab your cheek. Once you join, you stay on the registry until you are 61 and are called to donate only if you are the best match for a patient. For the patients we serve, transplant is their best or only chance for survival and most people don’t realize they have the power to be that patient’s cure. Our mission is to provide a matching donor for every patient in need and eliminate barriers to transplant, and we are about to accomplish that with your help.
