Donor’s Story

One of the main reasons I decided to join the registry is because of the lack of African Americans on the registry. Think about if it was your child, think about if it was your sister – don’t let fear be the only reason you don’t help someone or save a life. I hope one day I’m able to meet my recipient and thank him for making me a better person.

Operation Save Our Selves

Since 2018, Be The Match has teamed up with Sigma Gamma Rho, Alpha Phi Alpha, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s), and other groups to recruit more Black members to join the Be The Match Registry. With only 8% of the Be The Match Registry identifying as Black, Be The Match relies on these partners to increase the odds of finding a life-saving match for Black patients. 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon

In July 2021, Sigma Alpha Epsilon named Be The Match as one of their national philanthropies, working towards adding young, committed members to the Be The Match Registry. Before this, SAE had hosted 3 registry recruitment events yielding 137 registry members – and one registry member has already gone on to become a life-saving donor through stem cell donation! Active SAE members alone could potentially save over 100 lives, and by expanding to SAE lifetime members, thousands of lives could be saved! Watch this short video of a SAE member that received a life-saving treatment from Be The Match.
