Available during Registration: 8am - 9am


Plan ahead and come early to register for your chance to save a life!

    

Bone Marrow Donor Drive will be available during Registration for all those who would like to "Be involved and Be someone's cure."




When you join the Be The Match Registry®, you become part of every patient's search for a bone marrow donor. Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases need a bone marrow transplant. You could be the one to save a life.



More information regarding becoming a donor can be found on the Be the Match website.



    
    

One patient. One donor. That is how life-saving bone marrow matches are made. When you register to be a bone marrow donor, patients are counting on your commitment. Their lives depend on it.



If you match a patient, you have the right to change your mind. However, a late decision to not donate can be life-threatening to a patient. Please think seriously about your commitment before joining the registry.



Your commitment to patients 

Once you join the registry, the most important thing you can do is stay committed.

    
    

Note: If you are between the ages of 45 and 60, you will not be able to join the registry at this community event. You must join the registry online. To achieve our mission for all patients in need of a marrow transplant to have the best outcome possible, our focus in the community is to register donors ages 18-44. Research shows that younger donors are best for patients because they provide the greatest chance for transplant success. Doctors request donors in the 18-44 age group 90 percent of the time.
