Hi Texas HOSA! This year is the year to bring Be The Match to each and every chapter. The State team hopes to increase donations by 10% and it all starts with YOU! Be The Match is a network of donors, volunteers, medical experts, and researchers that helps patients get the crucial bone marrow transplants they need. By matching patients with a donor for
a life-saving marrow transplant, Be The Match will assist those with blood malignancies that are terminal. Throughout this, Be The Match will provide support to patients and their families to ensure a safe transplant journey. Be The Match has facilitated more than 120,000 blood stem cell transplants and 6,714 transplants last year to give patients hope for the future. Start your Be The Match journey by going to https://www.bethematchhosa.org to get started! The Be The Match website has everything you could ever need to get started on including
Be The Match into a chapter’s normal HOSA meetings!
Things to Note:
-Every chapter MUST re-register their chapter every year to create accurate donation reading!
-Donations and adding people to the register both count towards points on the Be The Match leaderboard! The more points the better so make sure to stay active on your Be The Match account!
