Leticia Mondragon shares the importance of joining the registry for Be the Match. When you join Be The Match Registry, your tissue type is added to the registry. You don't actually donate until you are a match for a patient. If you are chosen as the best match for a patient, the patient’s doctor will request that you donate either bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells. Find out more at BeTheMatch.org or text the word "Coastal Living" to 61474 to sign up and register through mail.
