|2018 New Orleans Conference - Be the Match|
As part of our new social awareness cause and in connection with our keynote presentation, look for ways to support Be the Match throughout the conference.
For patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists. We are a community of donors, volunteers, health care professionals and researchers who deliver cures by helping patients get the life-saving marrow or cord blood transplant they need. Our passion to save lives drives us to help more patients survive each year.
Some of the ways you can support Be The Match® at the conference:
Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia or other diseases like sickle cell anemia, need a marrow transplant to survive. Most patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family — and that’s when they turn to Be The Match®.
By joining the Be The Match Registry®, your tissue type will be included in the search process for every patient in need. We need registry members who are committed to helping save a life. That means being willing to donate to ANY patient in need, and being ready to follow through if called.
