My name’s Mason and I have myelodysplastic syndrome. As a Black American patient, my chances of finding a blood stem cell match to save my life are really low.

This is my race against time.

Mason

Mason’s smile defies his illness. Because as a toddler under 2-years-old, he finds joy in everything. But the genetic mutation that led to his disease could put an end to any joy he feels. As with all Black American patients searching on the registry, he only has a 23% chance of finding a match.

At Be The Match®, we help save lives by bringing donors to the blood cancer patients who desperately need them.
