No, this is not some online dating service! Be The Match is a registry for bone marrow donors. They attempt to match up people who need bone marrow transplants with people who have matching bone marrow and our willing to donate.
"Every three minutes, one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. That’s more than six people each hour, or 148 people each day. Patients are searching for a cure. It could be you.
Be The Match Registry® is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it. It is the largest and most diverse donor registry in the world."
I know, you are probably not sitting there thinking "Boy, I really want to donate some Bone Marrow today!" but just imagine your child needed a Bone Marrow transplant. Wouldn't you want an organization working to find your child a matching bone marrow that could save his/her life?
Visit Be The Match and get registered in their database. Odds are you will never be asked to donate, but why not register - you never know when you might be able to save a life.
