Joining BeTheMatch Registry®


NSH-BMT has partnered with BeTheMatch Registry® to help further expand the National Marrow Donor Program's (NMDP) unrelated donor registry donor pool. Participation is voluntary. If you have been HLA typed for a family member or friend, you can join the BeTheMatch Registry®. Because HLA tissue types are inherited, patients are most likely to match someone of their own race or ethnicity. While everyone is encouraged to join, donors of these backgrounds are especially needed:

  • Black or African American
  • American Indian or Alaska Native
  • Asian
  • Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander
  • Hispanic or Latino

By joining the BeTheMatch Registry®, your typing results will be entered into a database that is used to help locate potential unrelated donors for those patients battling diseases, such as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and many others. Donors never have to pay to donate and are never paid to donate. For additional information, you can log onto, BeTheMatch Registry® Vital Statistics and Guidelines for Joining the Registry Link.

NSH-BMT/Leukemia Team Participates in the 2017 Light The Night Fundraising Walk

For the first time in nineteen years, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night walk was held at Piedmont Park. On October 7, 2017, survivors, patients, families and practitioners gathered together to celebrate, honor and remember those touched by cancer. The walk itself is a showing of emotional support for our patients during their cancer journey. The proceeds from this fundraising event also provide our patients with financial and emotional support during their cancer journey. 

The BMT/Leukemia team was led by the inpatient team. Over 1.2 million dollars were raised, ranking tenth in the USA for funding raising dollars.  We thank all those who participated and supported the 2017 LLS Light The Night walk.
