Community Outreach


For thousands of patients with leukemia or other blood diseases like aplastic anemia and sickle cell, a marrow transplant is their only hope. 14,000 patients per year need a transplant from someone outside their family. Help us save more lives.

You can help by joining the Be The Match (www.bethematch.org) marrow registry.

To participate:

  1. Be 18-44 years old and in good health.
  2. Make a commitment to help any patient with whom you might be a match.
  3. Use this link to join the registry: https://join.bethematch.org/FALL2017.

After you sign up online, all it takes is a simple cheek swab, which gives Be The Match a sample of your DNA. Once you are on the registry, you will be automatically included in searches to see if you are a match for thousands of patients in need of a life-saving transplant. It’s very important that you return the swab kit for you to be included in the registry.

For more information about marrow donation, contact Anna Michalczyk at (847) 260-2716 or amichalczyk@itxm.org.
