Are you ready to make an impact? The cure is on campus. You can save the lives of patients with blood cancers and other deadly diseases, no matter where you are!
Be The Match On Campus program
Be The Match On Campus isn’t just a student-run organization, it’s a social movement literally saving lives. Hundreds of students from across the country have already teamed up to improve the lives of patients. We now need people like you to spread the mission at your campus.
Don’t Take Life for Granted
In February of 2019, Kathleen was unexpectedly diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia after visiting the hospital with severe bruising.
Before her fourth and final round of chemo, her doctors discovered that the cancer had spread and that she would need a bone marrow transplant. Luckily, her brother was a match and saved her life.
After treatment, Kathleen joined the University of Maryland’s Be The Match On Campus chapter because she wanted to help others like her to find their cure. With her leadership last year, the UMD chapter was one of the most successful in the program.
Be The Match works to find EVERY patient a match and that is why I am so proud to be a part of the organizationKathleen Blood stem cell recipient and registry member
