General

  • Mission:
  • Be The Match Foundation supports the mission of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), working to ensure that patients in need of a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant get the treatment and support they so desperately need. 70% of patients who are diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other blood diseases do not have a donor match in their family. These patients turn to us for help securing donors and a second chance at life. Since 1987, we have facilitated more than 43,000 transplants, including more than 5,200 transplants in 2010.

    The U.S. government has entrusted the NMDP to operate our nation's marrow and cord blood donation and transplantation program. We are the central hub of an extensive transplant network managed by nearly 750 staff at the Coordinating Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and at more than 25 other locations throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Our Network consists of more than 520 partners, including transplant centers, apheresis centers, marrow collection centers, donor centers, recruitment groups, cord blood banks, laboratories, and genetic sample repositories.

    The NMDP began connecting patients with unrelated donors in 1987 with a registry of just 10,000 marrow volunteers. Today, Be The Match Registry has grown to nearly 9 million potential donors and more than 185,000 cord blood units, making it the largest and most diverse registry in the world. Approximately 10,000 patients each year depend upon our registry to find an unrelated donor who is willing to volunteer their life-saving cells to save a life.

    Be The Match Foundation was established in 1991 to support the NMDP's mission. Our efforts increase the number of marrow volunteers on Be The Match Registry, provide financial assistance to patients for uninsured expenses, and to improve transplant outcomes through research.

  • History:
  • Be The Match Foundation supports the mission of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), working to ensure that patients in need of a life-saving marrow or cord blood transplant get the treatment they need. 70% of patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases do not have a match in their family and turn to us for help in securing an unrelated donor or cord blood unit for a second chance at life.

    The U.S. government entrusted the NMDP to operate the C. W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program, the federal program supporting marrow and cord blood donation and transplantation. The NMDP began connecting patients with donors in 1987 with just 10,000 marrow volunteers. Today, Be The Match Registry has grown to nearly 9 million adult donors and more than 185,000 umbilical cord blood units. It is accredited by the World Marrow Donor Association and is the largest, most racially and ethnically diverse registry in the world. Be The Match Foundation's goals focus on reducing barriers that prevent patients from gaining access to treatment:

    *To increase the likelihood that all patients find a match by building and diversifying within the Be The Match Registry

    *To improve transplant outcomes and long-term quality of life by advancing clinical practice through research.

    2010 NMDP/Be The Match Foundation Accomplishments:
    *Added 723,000 new potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry. Nearly 300,000 of these new members (40%) were from racially and ethnically diverse populations.

    *Added 36,000 new cord blood units to Be The Match Registry, increasing the inventory by 34%. The successful use of cord blood is increasing access for minority and pediatric patients who need a transplant
