Mission Statement

For people with life-threatening blood cancers - like leukemia and lymphoma - and other diseases, a cure exists. Be The Match connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. Be The Match provides patients and their families one-on-one support, education, and guidance before, during, and after transplant. You can be a part of someone’s cure by becoming a member of the Be The Match Registry, a Be The Match financial contributor, or a Be The Match volunteer.


Be The Match is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), a nonprofit organization that matches patients with donors, educates health care professionals and conducts research so more lives can be saved. To learn more about the cure, visit BeTheMatch.org or call 1 (800) 627-7692.

My nephew was diagnosed with Leukemia (All) and as a patient we attended the walk last year. Very emotional but in my perspective it's a must to volunteer

Tonight is the annual Gala and so I thought I would assist with setting up for the fantastic event. Both staff members and other volunteers were so friendly that this "work" we came to help with, was actually fun. The end result was a beautiful ballroom and lots of great auction items. Good luck and have fun tonight Be The Match crew!!!

I wish the location was more accessible by trimet, since I do not drive and require trimet to get me there and back home.
