Why Volunteer

Every four minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia. For many of them, a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant may be the only cure. Your work with Be The Match can directly affect these patients and their families by adding that one registry member who is a match, or by raising funds that provide financial support to cover the cost of a patient’s prescriptions or for a crucial research breakthrough. With your help, we can save more lives.
We have the cure for many types of blood cancer, and we’re saving lives every day. Join the thousands of Be The Match volunteers who give their time and talent so patients everywhere have hope for a cure.

Here’s what our volunteers have to say:

I volunteer for my sister and for all the people like her who are fighting cancer. There is nothing more motivating than finding matches and saving lives.

Volunteering with the Be The Match team is like hanging out with friends and family. Also, meeting people from all walks of life and listening to their stories makes giving a little of your time worthwhile.

The most rewarding thing about volunteering is a sense of giving back to help others get through their own transplant experience.
