Ongoing Online Donor Drives

AGES 18-44

Be The Match

Swab testing through Be The Match is FREE for younger people who join the registry. Statistically, doctors select a non-related donor between the ages of 18-44 over 85% of time; thus, registries necessarily focus their efforts in this age range. Visit the website or text ‘BruxFam’ to 61474 to order your swab kit now.

AGES 45-60

Gift Of Life

Healthy individuals aged 45-60 (up to their 61st birthday) can get swabbed but are asked to cover the $60 fee for testing and typing. While the majority of non-related donors are under age 45, patients with rare HLA types (like Tim) need access to every healthy, willing donor, no matter their age. Thank you for helping!
AGE 61 +

Gift Of Life

If you’ve reached your 61st birthday, you are no longer medically eligible to donate marrow or stem cells for a non-relative recipient. But there are so many ways to help. Sponsor a younger loved one’s swab test; host a donor drive in your community; or contribute a tax-deductible gift to our fund for ongoing swab testing to find Tim a match.
