Could you be a match for someone who needs a life-saving donation? Throughout the month of September, we're building awareness and trying to get more names on the Be the Match registry. It's just a cheek swab to get registered and in most cases, if you're someone's life-saving match, donating is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure similar to donating platelets or plasma.
STORIES OF DONATIONS
You can get on the registry by going to any Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center facilities or attend one of the events we've listed below. Once on the registry, you might get the call to save someone's life! Frequently asked Questions and Answers: join.bethematch.org
