Be The Match® helps patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other diseases who need a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant.

Be The Match provides support for patients, and enlists others in the community to join the Be The Match Registry® — the world’s largest listing of potential marrow donors and donated cord blood units — contribute financially and volunteer.

Patients and their families can also turn to Be The Match for support and resources before, during, and after transplant. Be The Match is operated by The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), a nonprofit organization that matches patients with donors, educates health care professionals and conducts research so more lives can be saved.

Program Description

Be The Match has a team dedicated to supporting patients, caregivers and families before, during, and after transplant.

We offer confidential, one-on-one support, financial guidance and free educational resources – including information and tools specifically targeted to children and their families. Our goal is to get you what you need, when you need it. We can help you learn more about transplant as a treatment option, plan for a transplant, and learn what to expect after transplant.

We offer support in more than 100 languages, including Spanish bilingual staff, and translated materials.


The Patient Assistance Program provides financial aid to support patients following transplant and to increase patient access to transplant when insurance coverage is lacking.
