Did you know that a simple cheek swab can help save a life?

Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell anemia or other life-threatening diseases depend on the Be The Match Registry to find a match to save their life.

Patients like Chris Leahy, Gamma 2002, need donors who are a genetic match. Even with a registry of millions, many patients cannot find a match. A simple cheek swab can help determine your compatibility with Brother Leahy and thousands of others like him who are waiting for a blood marrow donor.

To learn more, visit Be The Match Registry’s FAQ page here. To register in honor of Brother Leahy, visit bethematch.org/ChrisLeahy. By using this link, your willingness to donate will be extended to other patients whose doctors are checking the Registry daily; however, if you wish to be tested only as a potential match for Brother Leahy, you may have your testing done privately.
