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 most diverse marrow registry in the world. They work every day to save lives through blood stem transplants and therapies. Be The Match provides ground-breaking research, innovative technologies, patient support, and education that save lives.
Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer; this could be a stranger, a brother, or your family member. Becoming a donor is a direct way to help – you could be someone’s cure. Young male donors have the best medical outcomes for patients making SAE brothers ideal donors.
As partners, SAE can help grow the donor registry and save more lives. A handful of chapters have previously partnered locally with Be The Match. To date 137 registry members have been added, one of which went on to donate lifesaving blood stem cells to a patient in need. To save more lives, this year SAE launched our national partnership with Be The Match in July 2021.
