Patients in Need



Zoe Lopez


Zoe was diagnosed with Leukemia and her best chance of a cure is a bone marrow transplant.  Unfortunately no one in her family is a match.

Zoe and thousands of patients like her, depend on the Be The Match Registry to find a compatible marrow donor who can give them a chance for a cure.  Unfortunately, no one who is currently registered was a match for Zoe.

YOU could be her cure!  Join the Be the Match registry.  All it takes to join the registry is to complete a consent form and do a simple cheek cell swab.






Isaac Negrete


Isaac is an 8-year-old boy who loves videogames and Lego. He enjoys being with his mother, father and sister. Unfortunately Isaac can not go to school due to his treatment. He does not have a compatible donor within his family, so he hopes he finds an unrelated match. You can be Isaac's cure.






Asaya Bullock - NY


Asaya Bullock is a 3 years old boy suffering of a rare disease known as I-PEX Syndrome. Unfortunately, Asaya can't live his life as any other 3 year old. His trips to the hospital are more constant than his trips to the playground. Asaya needs a bone marrow transplant not only to live his life as a regular 3 year old, but he needs it in order to survive.






Israel Townes - PA


Israel Townes is a 13-year-old who loves football, basketball, roller skating and tracking. When he was born he was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia and at the age of one, the doctors found that he had the most severe form of the disease. This spring Israel had a severe crisis after trying out for track.  The doctor determined he wouldn’t be able to play sports at this time. Israel needs a bone marrow transplant and you can be his cure.






Angelica Reyes - OK


Angelica Reyes, 28 years old, is battling Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) since September 2013. She depends on an unrelated donor to be her match in order to survive. Angelica is looking for a compatible donor within the Mexican community, since heritage is so important when it comes to find a match.
