For patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases, a bone marrow or cord blood transplant may be their best or only hope for a cure. Yet 70% of patients who need a transplant to do not have a matching donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match® and support to find a match to save their life. We also provide one-on-one support to patients and their families throughout the transplant journey. Last April, I learned that a friend of mine who was battling cancer needed a bone marrow transplant to live. I joined Be The Match® to help run drives to find a match for him and for others waiting for transplants.
