The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center houses the Gulf Coast Marrow Donor Program and is an accredited donor center for the National Marrow Donor Program which operates the Be the Match® Registry. It is our mission to educate and register donors for the Be the Match®Registry, to promote awareness of the life-saving need for marrow or peripheral blood stem cell donations from adult donors to patients awaiting transplant, and to raise funds for donor testing, typing and recruitment in the Gulf Coast region. Every dollar raised goes towards the education and recruitment of potential marrow or stem cell donors; proactive retention efforts and community awareness events; as well as to cover unreimbursed donor-related expenses.
