How to Become a Bone Marrow Donor

Our office often receives inquiries asking us about becoming a bone marrow or stem cell donor.

OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network is responsible for finding and matching volunteer donors to patients who require stem cell transplants.

You may be eligible to join if you are between 17 and 35 years old and meet certain health criteria.

You can join OneMatch by calling toll-free 1-888-2 DONATE or by visiting their website

You cannot be tested specifically for a relative or friend. The website contains information about the registration and donation process.

OneMatch is a member of an international network of registries with more than 20 million donors worldwide. By agreeing to make their donor data available worldwide, international registries have significantly increased the odds of being able to find a matching donor for any patient, anywhere in the world.
