Be The Match – delivers cures for blood cancers

by Brad Smith, Director of Community Service

In an effort to expand PCMA’s presence in our respective communities and to allow increased PCMA Southeast Chapter members to participate in community service projects, we’ve partnered with Be the Match.

Be The Match® delivers cures for blood cancers

For patients with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma or other life-threating diseases, a cure exists – a blood stem cell transplant. Be the Match leads the fight to advance the science of transplant, support patients at every step of their journey, and empower people to give the greatest gift of all – the gift of life.

There are several ways for our members to participate:

  1. Sign up through our PCMA Southeast Chapter support page
  2. Join the donor registry. If you meet the requirements, you can request a swab kit and submit your sample.  Your family and friends can participate as well.
  3. Donate
  4. Volunteer
