Thank you for your interest in joining Be The Match Registry®. We are grateful for your service and your interest in helping patients in need of a life saving marrow transplant. More than 400,000 members of the U.S military have joined the marrow registry. They stand ready not only to protect America, but are willing to save the life of a patient affected by leukemia or other blood disorder who need a marrow transplant.
U.S. military personnel are asked to register for the Be The Match Registry through the Department of Defense (DoD) using one of these options below. Military personnel is defined as active duty U.S. military personnel and their dependents, reservists, retirees, National Guard, Coast Guard and DoD civilian personnel.
If you match a patient, a donor coordinator from the C. W. Bill Young/DoD Marrow Donor Center will inform you of your status. If you are active, your Commanding Officer also signs the consent to continue, so he or she is aware that there is a relatively high chance (about 1 in 10) that you will donate marrow.
