Each year, approximately 17,500 people, ages 0-74, in the United States are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses where bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplantation from a related or unrelated matched donor is their best treatment option.
A patient is hoping someone like you registers to become a marrow donor.
A bone marrow transplant or umbilical cord blood transplant (also called a BMT) is a potentially life-saving treatment for some patients who have leukemia, lymphoma, or a genetic metabolic or immune system disorder. A bone marrow or cord blood transplant replaces a patient's unhealthy blood-forming cells with healthy cells from a donor.
You could be the one to save a life.
The registry of the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program is also called the Be The Match Registry®. The registry is a listing of potential marrow donors and donated cord blood units.
