Thank you to all the blood stem cell donors and registry members who are saving lives around the world!

Did you know saving lives through blood stem cell donor is a truly international mission?  Nearly 50% of all blood stem cell transplants use international donations!

Be The Match is one of 100 organizations from 57 countries that celebrate World Marrow Donor Day to thank everyone who has donated blood stem cell donors, via marrow or PBSC, as well as registry members who are standing ready to donate to any patient in need. It is also a day to raise awareness of the need for more people to sign up—especially young, ethnically diverse donors who help increase genetic diversity on the registry.

Patients and their families are tremendously grateful to every one of the more than 32 million people across the globe who are offering hope of a cure.

Help celebrate the 1.2 million transplantations worldwide by inviting friends and family to join the registry to save a life.
