Be The Match, Join the Bone Marrow Registry
Department:   Cancer Center
Description:

Be The Match

Every day, patients with leukemia hope for a marrow donor who can make their transplant possible. Seventy percent of patients don't have a donor in their family. They depend on people like you.

To be a member of the registry, all you need to do is:

  • Be between the ages of 18 and 44
  • Be willing to donate to any patient in need
  • Meet the health guidelines
  • Keep your contact information current with  BeTheMatch.org
  • Join at a donor registry drive or online
  • Complete a registration form with your contact information, health history and signed agreement to join
  • Give a swab of your cheek cells so your tissue type can be determined

Everyone is welcome. If you have questions, please call Cancer Connect at 860-545-6000 or email: cancerconnect@harthosp.org

More Info: You can join at a donor registry drive or online at BeTheMatch.org
