BENEFITING: NATIONAL MARROW DONOR PROGRAM
EVENT DATE: Jan 29, 2012
Team Be The Match is a nationwide community committed to helping patients in need of a marrow transplant. We help raise funds to add potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry.
Every day, thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases search for a marrow donor who can make their transplant possible. Seventy percent will not find a match in their family and turn to Be The Match Registry, the largest and most diverse registry of volunteer marrow donors in the world. Every person who joins the registry gives patients hope.
When you join Team Be The Match and raise funds, you increase the chances of patients finding a donor and receiving the life-saving transplant they need. By joining Team Be The Match, you will help to significantly increase the number of potential donors on the registry. Today, there are more than 8 million but more are needed and you can help by teaming up. You can help people join the registry and help increase the chance that a match can be found for every patient in need.
