BRANDON, FL – Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, or other diseases like sickle cell, need a blood stem cell transplant to survive. Most patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family — and that’s when they turn to Be The Match®.

By joining the Be The Match Registry®, your genetic type will be included in the search process for every patient in need of a genetically matched donor.

We need registry members between the ages of 18-40 who are committed to helping save a life. That means being willing to donate to any patient in need, keeping your contact information up to date, and responding quickly if you are called as a potential match.

Join us for our Be The Match registry drive:

HCA Florida Brandon Hospital, 119 Oakfield Drive, Brandon
Wednesday, September 21, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tower C Entrance – Cafeteria – Oak Room

What to expect?

  • You are not donating for a patient at the registry drive.  A cheek swab is used to add your genetic type to the Be The Match registry.
  • Keep your contact information up-to-date so Be The Match can find you quickly if you are a possible match.
  • You’ll be listed on the Be The Match registry until you’re 61, unless you request to be removed from future searches.
  • If you are called as a possible match, it’s important that you respond quickly, and are willing to give a blood sample to Be The Match for further match testing.
  • Share your decision to join the registry with family and friends now, so they’ll support you later if you are called as a match.
