Be The Match® needs your help to ensure that Congress continues to fund this critical life-saving program. Please contact your Members of Congress today and urge them to support continuing appropriations to grow and diversify the Be The Match Registry®—the national listing of volunteer marrow donors and donated cord blood units operated by the NMDP. A continued investment will mean that more donors can be found and more lives can be saved.
Support the National Marrow Donor Program
Dear [Decision Maker],
Every year, 10,000 patients in this country need a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant, yet only half receive one. Often, a patient's only chance at survival is a transplant from someone outside of their family. The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is the global leader in providing transplants to these patients. Over the past 25 years, the nonprofit organization has made more than 50,000 transplants possible. But more can and must be done.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
