For the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 30 years Be The Match ® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program ® (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant. If you or a loved one is diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or other life-threatening disease, a bone marrow or cord blood transplant (BMT) may be your best or only hope for a cure. We are dedicated to helping you get the support and information you need to learn about your disease and treatment options, prepare for transplant and thrive after transplant. The information and resources here will help you navigate your transplant journey.
We are here to help you get reliable, easy-to-read information from diagnosis through recovery. Call or email us for confidential, one-on-one support from caring experts. We’ll listen and help you find answers. All of our programs and resources are free.

It’s also a good idea to consider fundraising. Fundraising can help pay for extra costs before and after transplant. Family, friends, and coworkers often want to help, but don’t know how. Fundraising can give them a way to help you relieve some of your financial worries.
