For patients with sickle cell disease, blood cancer and other deadly illnesses, there is a cure, and it could be found on your campus!

‘Be The Match’ focuses recruitment efforts on college campuses and universities that have the greatest potential to increase the ethnic diversity of the blood stem cell registry. This focus is in order to help a larger number of patients of color find a lifesaving match.

‘Be The Match’ recruits volunteer blood stem cell donors to help patients find their lifesaving match. Currently, Black and African American patients have a mere 23% chance of finding a matched donor, while Hispanic patients have a 46% chance of finding one. By comparison, as much as 77% of White patients have a chance of finding a matched donor.

We want to help college campuses present students with a unique opportunity to address health care disparities through diversity, equity and inclusion. Students will have an opportunity to be someone’s hero — to literally save someone’s life.

YOU can help raise awareness about this opportunity. We offer a variety of college programs and activities, so you can pick the one that’s right for you and your student base.
