As part of each episode, we will let you know how you, too, can support the causes you see on the show.
Be The Match Foundation was established in 1991 to support the mission of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP): "to save lives through cellular transplantation – science, service and support." Be The Match Foundation supports the NMDP's mission of saving lives by ensuring that patients in need of a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant gain access to this therapy. Approximately 70% of patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma, genetic disorders, immune deficiencies, and over 70 other life-threatening blood diseases do not find a donor match in their family. These patients turn to Be The Match Foundation and the NMDP for help securing an unrelated donor and the support needed for a second chance at life. For more information, visit www.marrow.org.
