My name’s Alfredo and I have IL 10 Receptor Deficiency. As a Hispanic patient, my chances of finding a life-saving blood stem cell match are really low, but you could be my cure.

This is my race against time.

Be The Match® helps save lives by bringing donors to the blood cancer patients who desperately need them.

Six years of suffering. One tiny immune system battling overwhelming issues like gastrointestinal pain and stunted growth. That’s what Alfredo’s endured. In fact, his disorder’s so rare, fewer than 100 people have been diagnosed with it worldwide.

As with all Hispanic patients searching on the Be The Match Registry, Alfredo only has a 46% chance of finding a match. But with your help, Alfredo can overcome the odds.
