The same year Sheldon graduated high school, he learned he has a blood disorder called aplastic anemia. He doesn’t produce enough cells he needs to survive and the cells he does produce destroy each other. He gets tired and light-headed, and he experiences muscle cramps because of the medications he’s taking. Without a bone marrow transplant, Sheldon won’t survive.
What if you could save someone’s life? There are a lot of someones out there who deserve a second chance. By joining Be The Match Registry®, you could be the answer someone battling aplastic anemia or blood cancer has been searching for. You could be the cure.
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.
