Be The Match is a nonprofit organization managed by the National Marrow Donor Program and facilitates the largest and most diverse bone marrow registry in the world. They help cancer patients across the world through donations and transplants. Joining the registry and potentially donating marrow can save the life of someone in need.

HOSA’s National Service Project is Be The Match. This means that HOSA is working with Be The Match to raise awareness and get potential donors registered through the Nebraska HOSA Network. You can participate in the National Service Project and Be The Match by joining the registry, fundraising individually or as a chapter, volunteering, donating, and through advocacy. As more information regarding HOSA and Be The Match is released, we will cover it!


This year, Nebraska HOSA is raising funds and raising hope for patients with blood cancer and other life-threatening blood diseases. You can help! Every dollar raised and new donor on the Be The Match Registry means a brighter future for patients and their families!

To join our fundraising page, click the link below! You can register to fundraise as your HOSA chapter or as an individual, or you can just make a one time donation.  

Will you help us reach our goal by making a tax-deductible donation? It’s fast and easy to do, and many will benefit from your generosity.
