Transcript of WMDD Training
of patients who need a transplant to do not have a matching donor in their family.
They depend on Be The Match® and our supporters to find a match to save their life. Lets review the history of Be The Match
Only 50% of patients receive the transplant they need to save their life
Some patients find a match but the donor declines.
For some a match is never found
Others learn that transplant is no longer a treatment option for them.
Committed Donors Only
Younger Donors are Needed
Doctors request younger donors 90% of the time
• Younger donors provide the best chance for transplant success.
• Younger donors provide higher volume of bone marrow and stem cells.
• Registry Guidelines:
– Be between the ages of
18 and 44 (45 &up there is tax deductible fee for processing)
The Need For Diversity
Minority donors currently represent only 39% of the Be the Match the Registry.
What Happens Now?
You've registered, swabbed
and the phone rings!
You're a Potential Match!
Finding A Match Is HARD.
A patient’s body will only accept marrow or stem cells that closely matches the patient.
Highly specialized testing is performed to determine compatibility between a donor and patient.
1 in every 420 that join will be a match
How to Help
1. Educate/ Commit Potential Donor
2. Walk Through
Step 1: Educate
• Tell potential donors that they can help patients in need of a transplant
– For some, it may be their only hope for a cure
– For Leukemia, Lymphoma, Sickle Cell Anemia and other patients with a blood disease -their body no longer produces blood cells the way it should
Once matched, doctors would rid the patient's body of cancer and take out their immune system with high doses of chemotherapy and radiation. They then recieve the donated cells to build a new working blood system. The cells wont realize they are in the wrong body and will replace the defeated blood system. Most donors say stem cell donation feels like donating blood and marrow donation feels like doing squats. Most patients in need of a marrow donation are children or those suffering from aggressive cancers of the blood.
Completeing the Registration Form
The potential donor will be asked to create an account. This is where they can log in anytime to see the status of their swab kit and change/update information as needed during their time on the registry.
They will need to verify their account by checking their email. The email will instruct them to log in.
