Be The Match Houston works locally to help recruit, educate and add donors to the Be The Match Registry and also to support the donor during the donation process. There are many costs associated with donation from over-the-counter medicine needs to transportation and overnight stays for some donors.
For more than 20 years, we have fundraised to help offset these costs so there is never any cost to someone wanting to join the registry or to a donor who has made the decision to donate to someone in need.
You can help this cause by starting a personal or team fundraising page. Fundraise YOUR way! Whatever you do - celebrate a birthday, run a marathon or honor a loved one - you'll be delivering cures for blood cancer. 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.
Maybe you can't give right now but still want to support Be The Match Houston. Just click on the Volunteer link and we will contact you with volunteer opportunities.
Remember - we aren't looking for a cure, we found one. What we are looking for are dedicated team members to help us see that everyone searching for their cure finds it.
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.
