Welcome, HOSA members! Together we're making a life-saving difference.
HELP GROW THE REGISTRY
Patients are more likely to match with someone of their same ethnicity, which is why it is crucial to grow and diversify the registry. Thousands of patients each year are still searching for their match!

ABOUT BE THE MATCH
Thousands of people are diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers and diseases like leukemia and sickle cell. They depend on Be The Match and our supporters to find a match to save their life.
As the global leader in blood stem cell transplantation, we connect the world’s most diverse registry of donors with patients who are their genetic match. Just 30% of patients needing a transplant have a full match within their family. The other 70% of patients turn to us for help.
