Eligibility & Registration Dialogue

Can I register when I am already signed up with BeTheMatch/NMDP?

While we love the enthusiasm of wanting to register again, multiple registrations by the same individual can actually result in duplicate HLA profiles searchable on the National Bone Marrow Donor registry, meaning both a waste of resources and, more importantly, can cause confusion for patients who may believe they have more potential matches then there really are. If you wish to register with DKMS but are not sure if you are already registered, please first contact the Be The Match registry by calling 1-800-MARROW2 (1-800-627-7692). If you are not registered with them, you are invited to contact DKMS to ensure you’ve never registered with us, either. If you have not, we’ll gladly add you to our lifesaving team!

There are many ways to get involved and support our mission.
You could be raising awareness, joining the registry, hosting your own [registration] event, taking on a fundraising challenge, or anything in between.
