If you are between the ages of 18 and 44 and have diverse ancestry, patients especially need you to join the Be The Match registry! 
 
It’s pain-free – just a simple swab of your cheek!
It’s free-of-charge and quick - only takes 15 minutes!
 
When there is no available family member to help
a patient, donors and patients who share the same 
ancestry are most likely to have a marrow match
 
At this time, not enough diverse, committed potential
marrow donors have joined. You can change that!
 
Here are the Stats:
10.5 million total registrants in the 
Be The Match Registry only-- 
 
  7%  are African American
  1%  are American Indian/Alaska Native
  7%  are Asian/South Asian
 10%  are Hispanic/Latino 
  4%  are Multiple Race 
0.2%  are Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander
