Join Our Race Against Time

We match blood cancer patients to their life-saving donor. But as patients urgently need blood stem cell donors who share their ethnic background, race is a crucially important factor.

Your Race Matters

Not everyone has an equal chance at finding a cure, but your participation can help change that.

Matthew
Knowing that I could potentially help someone else was a great feeling. I would barely call it a procedure it was more like a prolonged blood draw in both arms. All I had to do was sit there and watch TV. Donating was one of the absolute easiest ways to save a live I could think of.

Linda
I joined when my brother was fighting for his life. Sadly, I was not a match and he did not survive. But two years later I was called as a match for a stranger in need. I decided to move forward in honor of him.

When I was told I could save someone’s life with leukemia, there was NO hesitation. My only questions were when and where. Thanks to Be The Match for making this an easy process.

We do everything we can to make donating easy. It doesn’t cost anything to the donor. Travel, or any expenses that the donor experiences during the process are covered.

Since Roman was born we have been searching for his match. Our mixed ancestry lowers his odds. On behalf of all families like ours, please join the registry if you have a diverse or mixed ethnic background.
