Marrow Donor Program

Gulf Coast Marrow Donor Program

Every four minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. For thousands of patients with leukemia or other blood diseases like sickle cell anemia, a marrow transplant is their only hope.  You could save a life by joining Be The Match Registry®.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 44, patients need you.  Doctors choose registry members between 18 and 44 more than 90 percent of the time.  There are many other ways that you can help.  You can become a volunteer, attend events, spread the word through communities and social media, and make a financial donation.

90-Day Challenge

This summer, Be The Match Houston is looking for 1,000 kind-hearted individuals who will step up and commit to saving a life. We are challenging everyone in the Houston metro area to sign up to save a life. More than 800 Texans are waiting for a bone marrow transplant, to save their life. You could be the one to help save a life. Donating bone marrow is not painful because you are given anesthesia during the marrow extraction procedure. If you are healthy, and between the ages of 18 and 44, you can sign up at http://join.bethematch.org/challenge today.
