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.
Stories of Hope, Courage and Support
Mine for Cline Cline is a 5-year-old boy who needs your help! Like many other kids his age, Cline enjoys playing soccer with his friends and fishing with his dad. But a rare blood disorder has destroyed his immune system, and he needs a bone marrow transplant to reel in a lifetime of memories. Like 70 percent of all patients in need of a bone marrow transplant, he doesn’t have a match within his own family. None of the 11 million donors currently registered with Be The Match are matches for Cline either. He needs more people to join the registry to find a match – you could be his match! Please join the registry online or visit any Neighborhood Donor Center to join.
