About Us

It’s about helping patients

Be The Match Registry® is the donor registry operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). We’ve been helping patients receive the transplants they need for more than 25 years.

Now, medical advances are making transplants available to more patients of all ages than ever before.

We introduced Be The Match® in 2009 to meet this need by engaging a growing community of people inspired and committed to help patients in any way they can — by joining the registry, donating umbilical cord bloodcontributing financially or getting involved.

It’s about finding a match

Be The Match offers people the unique opportunity to help a patient by donating bone marrow or umbilical cord blood. Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases depend on Be The Match to find a match.

A patient’s doctor can search our Be The Match to Registry and other registries worldwide to access more than 20.5 million donors and more than 590,000 cord blood units.

Many have already stepped forward — if you’ve already joined the NMDP Registry, you are a member of the Be The Match Registry and do not need to join again.

Many more are needed.
The more people who join our Be The Match community, the more patients we will help — together.

Be the one to give hope
