Save a Life --- Join the Bone Marrow Registry

Thousands of patients hope for a bone marrow donor who can make their life-saving transplant possible, just like Tyler has experienced. They depend on people like you and me to offer our this lifesaving gift. You have the power to save a life. Take the first step today by joining yourself!

When you join the Be The Match Registry, you become part of every patient's search for a bone marrow donor. You could be the one to save a life.

And now, during the Be The Match Marrowthon, you can join online for free June 8 - 22, while funding remains. Our Marrowthon goal is to add 46,000 new members to the registry. Be one of them!

When you join, you can also choose to make a financial contribution. It costs about $100 to add a donor to the registry. Your tax-deductible gift in any amount creates the opportunity for more donors to join.

It's easy to join the the Be The Match Registry at:

1. Confirm you meet basic registry guidelines.
2. Complete the online form and order your registration kit. This step will take about 30 minutes.

The cost to add you to the registry has been covered, but funding is limited. To join for free, you must complete the online registration step before June 22 AND before funding limits are met.

3. Follow the instructions in your kit to collect a swab of cheek cells and return the kit.
