our mission

Our mission at Be The Match® is simple—but profoundly important: WE SAVE LIVES.


For people with life-threatening blood cancers and diseases, a cure exists through a bone marrow transplant from a genetically matched donor. However, 70% of patients do not have a match within their family, so they must rely on the Be The Match Registry® to find an unrelated donor.


Currently, not every patient in need is able to find a closely matched donor, especially ethnically diverse patients. Our vision is to democratize cell therapy, ensuring that all patients in need receive a life-saving transplant. Providing equal outcomes for all.
