Bruno is only 4 months old, but he’s already going through chemotherapy. He has a rare and life-threatening condition called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, HLH, and a blood stem cell transplant is the only cure. Currently, there are no genetically matched donors for Bruno on the Be The Match Registry®.
Right now, thousands of patients with blood cancer and other life-threatening diseases are in need of a cure. Some patients find a fully matched donor in their family, but 70% of patients depend on Be The Match to find their genetically matched donor. They rely on their extended Latino family to step up and save them, because they are most likely to match a donor with the same ethnic heritage.
Step up and represent today as a life-saving blood stem cell donor.
JOIN BE THE MATCH REGISTRY®.
We’ll ask you a series of questions about your medical history to see if you meet basic qualifications.
We’ll need to get a sample of your DNA. Your kit should arrive in about 3-7 business days.
It’s easy – just swab your cheek and mail the DNA sample back to us to complete your registration.
Because of the genetic complexity of matching donors to patients, it could be weeks, months or years before you’re contacted to donate.
Be ready if you’re contacted as a match. If called, you’re a patient’s best genetic match from the entire registry and perhaps their only hope for a cure.
