    bone marrowOn-site TBS Activity: Be tested to become a donor and perhaps save a life.

    For thousands of patients with a blood cancer like leukemia or other blood disease like sickle cell anemia, a marrow or umblical cord transplant is their only life-saving treatment-their only chance for a cure. Yet most have no matching marrow donor in their family. They turn to Be The Match for help every step of the way. They operate the largest, most diverse registry of potential marrow donors in the world and work to locate the best possible match for each patient. Through being involved with Be The Match, you transplant hope and become part of every patient’s cure. If you are between the ages of 18 and 44, patients need you. If you have diverse heritage, patients especially need you because they are most likely to match someone who shares their ancestry.
