Make Me Stronger

A call to action. A cry for help. An opportunity for you to realize your power to give strength to someone affected by a blood cancer (Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma). Get involved. Make someone stronger.

Register and Donate: How does it work?

Registering: It all starts with simple cheek swabs

Registration is now digital! Allowing potential registrants time to educate themselves on the process and help ensure that whoever registers is a committed donor.

To register, you can use our custom link with Be the Match – https://join.bethematch.org/makemestronger

Complete your information online and a kit will be mailed directly to you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us and we’ll do our best to assist, provide information or direct you to our partner  or our partners.

The chance of finding a matching, committed and available donor based on race:

Multiracial – Less than 23%
Black/African American – 23%
Asian/East Asia – 44%
South Asian – 44%
Hispanic/Latino – 46%
Caucasian – 77%
We hope to improve these stats, and with your help, we can!

Donating: A prick of a needle gives you a chance to save a life!

20% of donations are taken from the bone marrow. Anesthesia is given so don’t feel any pain during the process.

80% of donations are taken from your blood. It’s similar to donating blood or giving blood during a physical.

Are you ready? REGISTER NOW!
