One touch says it all. Caden, a marrow transplant recipient with his father.
Healing Touch 2010 Annual Report
Caden, transplant recipient, with his big brother, Austin.
“Before the transplant, Austin stood beside Caden’s crib, touched his arm and told him how much he loved him. He knew Caden was sick, but couldn’t understand how bad it was,” said Melissa, the boys’ mother. Today, Caden is happy and healthy and diligently carrying out his duties as a goofy little brother.

That make a profound difference Patients and their families are not alone when they begin the overwhelming journey that is a marrow transplant. From diagnosis to the search for a donor, and from transplant to recovery, Be The Match Foundation® and the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) identify critical points where our healing touch makes a profound difference.
• $2.5 million awarded in Patient Assistance Grants helping more than 2,000 qualifying families with uninsured treatment costs
Generous supporters like you help us serve thousands of patients diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and 70 other life-threatening diseases. These patients need a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant, but have no donor match in their family.
• $741,000 raised for transplant research
In 2010, you helped add nearly 723,000 potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry® — giving more patients hope for a cure. You helped ease the financial burden of more than 2,000 patients struggling with uninsured treatment costs. And you helped drive innovations in marrow transplant care by investing in medical research. Last year, the National Marrow Donor Program achieved a record with more than 5,200 unrelated transplants. Yet, we know that each year at least 10,000 patients need that chance. Your continued support will help bridge that gap. Because of you, one day we will eliminate graft-versus-host disease, a posttransplant complication. We will move patients to transplant faster. We will expand the growing number of diseases treated with a transplant. And, we will increase cord blood donations, an important cell source that can help the most difficult-to-match patients. With your support, all of this is achievable. Thank you for all you do to help us ease each patient’s journey.
Thank you for adding your healing touch.
• $4.9 million raised to add more potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry • 723,000 new members added to the registry • 300,000 of these new members are from diverse racial and ethnic communities • 116 donors compensated for lost wages, enabling them to donate to a patient in need • 5,200 unrelated marrow or cord blood transplants facilitated by the NMDP for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and 70 other lifethreatening diseases • 43,000 transplants since the NMDP began in 1987

Powering the global transplant community
Be The Match Foundation proudly supports The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). Since 1986, the NMDP has been entrusted by Congress to operate America’s marrow donor registry. Its reach, however, extends far beyond our national borders. The NMDP is a world leader in stem cell transplantation and at the center of a global Network, connecting more than 526 leading cellular therapy institutions in more than 40 countries. We partner with donor registries and cord blood banks worldwide to give searching patients access to more than 16.5 million potential marrow donors and nearly 550,000 cord blood units. We know how to leverage global resources: bringing together scientists, doctors, hospitals, laboratories and governments — all to better serve our patients.
The NMDP Network: 166 Transplant Centers (43 international) – meet the highest standards of care for stem cell transplant patients. 86 Donor Centers (7 international) and Recruitment Centers – educate the public about the need for marrow donors, add members to the registry and support donors. 21 Cord blood banks (2 international) – recruit cord blood donors, work with hospitals to collect cord blood units, and store and add them to Be The Match Registry. 99 Collection Centers (16 international) – perform marrow collections. 90 Apheresis Centers (7 international) – perform peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) collections. 26 HLA Typing Laboratories – tissue type donor samples and add them to Be The Match Registry for patient matching.

Our Repository As one of the largest research storage facilities in the world, the NMDP Repository in New Brighton, Minn. processes and stores more than 10 million tissue samples from potential marrow donors, donor-recipient pairs and research participants. It receives 40,000 new samples each month. The Repository also houses more than 900,000 research samples from 22,000 donor-recipient matches. Researchers from around the world study them to advance transplant science.
When a person joins BeÂ TheÂ Match Registry, his or her registration kit, complete with their tissue samples, is sent to the NMDP Repository. A portion of each sample is stored for future analysis and another portion is shipped to a lab for tissue typing. Once typed, the potential donor is added to the registry for physicians to search on behalf of patients who need a volunteer marrow donor.
The NMDP Repository is one of the largest research storage facilities in the world.

Innovation that touches lives At the birth of a child, moms and dads intuitively feel that their little ones are born with unique gifts to share with the world. Scientists have discovered it’s more than a feeling. It’s a fact. Researchers have learned that not only is a baby’s umbilical cord blood rich with stem cells to help patients who need a marrow donor, they’ve discovered these cells can help more difficult-to-match patients. In recent years, cord blood has become an important and growing cell source for marrow transplants. In 2010, 22 percent of all NMDP facilitated transplants, more than 1,150, used cord blood. Cord blood has helped broaden access to transplant for more patients, especially those from racially or ethnically diverse communities. They have less common tissue types and have more difficulty finding a suitable adult donor. In 2010, more than 40 percent of all minority patients undergoing transplant received cord blood cells.
And while cord blood was once used almost exclusively for children, scientists have learned that using two cord blood units to increase the cell volume is an increasingly important option for adult patients. In 2010, the NMDP facilitated more than 400 multi-cord transplants. Cord blood is just one of many promising research areas providing hope to patients in need of a marrow transplant. In 2010, the NMDP — together with its partner, the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research®— published the results of cutting-edge research through 86 peer-reviewed journal articles and 95 abstracts presented at professional conferences. It launched 16 clinical trials and continued progress on 262 observational studies; all to improve outcomes for our patients.
In 2010, Be The Match Foundation raised $741,000 to support promising researchers. Medical advances are key to helping the 10,000 patients each year searching for a donor and hoping for a transplant.
Cord blood saved this mother In 2011, Jennifer Jones Austin (second from the left), a two-cord recipient, celebrated her one-year anniversary post transplant. This wife and mother beat leukemia because there are women who choose to generously donate their babies’ cord blood to help patients in need.

Be The Match Foundation has named Sophie Paczesny, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Michigan Medical School, as the newest scholar in The Amy Strelzer Manasevit Research Program. She was awarded a three-year, $240,000 grant for her research to create a testing method that predicts a patient’s risk of developing chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and their responsiveness to different treatment options. GVHD occurs when a recipient’s new immune system from the donor recognizes the body’s cells as foreign and attacks. This painful and potentially life-threatening complication occurs, to varying degrees, in at least 40 percent of patients.

Patient Assistance A touch of relief
When you’re fighting for your life, the last thing you want to think about is a mounting stack of bills. While a marrow transplant can be a life-saving treatment, it takes a financial toll on a family. Often there is the temporary loss of at least one income. And even with insurance, not all costs are covered. Be The Match Foundation provides financial assistance to qualifying families who need help with uninsured treatment costs. Thanks to generous supporters, in 2010 we provided $2.5 million in Patient Assistance Grants and helped more than 2,000 families. Some of those dollars helped patients whose insurance would not cover the cost to search for a donor. For these patients, raising the necessary funds to conduct a donor search may have been impossible and taken valuable time they did not have.
The fastest growing need, however, is for post-transplant recovery grants. In 2010, we saw a 14 percent increase in the number of patient families overwhelmed by uninsured recovery costs. These grants help families pay for prescription co-pays; transportation to and from the transplant center, often in another state; temporary lodging; and other uninsured expenses for up to six months after transplant. On average, a patient’s recovery expenses exceed a family’s income by $1,400 a month. And, recovery can take 3 to 9 months. While we are proud that no qualifying patient has ever been turned away, requests for help continue to escalate. Your contributions to Patient Assistance give our families a touch of relief at a time when they need it most.
When a single mother gets sick, really sick, who takes care of her? Victoria, 48, a single mother and a heavy equipment operator from Ohio, was diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia and underwent a marrow transplant in September 2009. Her daughter, Kimberly, had just left to begin her freshman year of college and her son, Michael, was a junior in high school. “My kids did what they could, but they had to be in school. They needed to push forward, just like I did. It took me a while to accept help. My church brought us lots of food and Be The Match Foundation Patient Assistance Grants helped, too.” “Patient Assistance helped with the bills and helped with my spirits,” Victoria said. “Just knowing that there are people out there who understand and want to help — well, that means a lot.” Victoria enjoying her new grandson, Kyle.

Rescuing the firefighter Saving people is what Steve is all about. Needing to be saved — well, that’s outside this Ohio firefighter’s comfort zone. In 2009, Steve, 27, was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and needed a marrow transplant. “The hardest thing for me was the shift in roles. I had to totally lose all control and hand it over to the doctors and my donor.” Despite having good insurance, Steve’s disease took its toll on the family finances. He received a Patient Assistance Grant. “Oh my God did that grant help. I had lost my income and there were lots of uninsured expenses. Driving two hours each week to the clinic meant gas and parking expenses. And the medication costs were unbelievable. I was on 26 medications when I got out of the hospital. The co-pays alone amounted to hundreds of dollars each month. The grant from Be The Match helped my wife and I fill in the gaps.” A week before his wedding, Steve learned his cancer was back and he needed a marrow transplant. The centerpieces at his wedding reception featured a call for guests to join Be The Match Registry. Today, he’s healthy and happily planning to grow old with his bride, Aryn.

Corporate Partners A touch of hope
Be The Match Foundation partners with companies nation wide that want to make it their business to save lives.
small, to provide this unique life-saving opportunity to their employees.
In 2010, 799 new businesses connected our mission with their corporate values. Some sponsored our annual Tribute dinner, Be The One Runs, and other events. Some invested in our Patient Assistance Program to help families with uninsured treatment costs. Others created educational tools for our physicians. And many helped their employees and their communities join Be The Match Registry.
Companies work with us to sponsor their staff and arrange either an on-site registry drive or an online drive. Every $100 raised adds a new member to the registry. Be The Match relies on financial contributions from our corporate partners and the general public to help cover the cost of growing the registry.
Adding potential donors to the marrow registry is critical to helping more patients find their ideal match. Be The Match reaches out to businesses, large and
Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. provided a grant to create a free smart phone app with Quick Reference Guidelines for hematologists and oncologists caring for patients before or after a marrow transplant. The app provides two sets of clinical guidelines to help physicians recommend timing for transplant and screen for post-transplant complications such as graft-versus-host disease.
More than 5,500 businesses such as American Airlines, Ford, General Motors, and the United States Postal Service have supported our mission and their employees who want to make a life-saving impact.
In honor of Black History Month and to help raise awareness of the need for more African American marrow donors, Nordstrom, Inc. teamed up with Be The Match to add potential marrow donors to the registry. Nordstrom covered the $100 cost of adding each new member to the registry, up to $75,000. The retailer held live donor drives for its employees in several cities across the country as well as promoted the opportunity to join the registry to its in-store and online customers.

Nissin and his father, Aron, take a spin around the transplant ward.
Corporate compassion in the skies After five months at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital, Sharon and Aron were elated when they learned they could take their 9-year-old son, Nissin, back home to Baltimore. Nissin had received a successful marrow transplant for a rare blood disease, and his immune system was beginning to heal. But after living in a safe cocoon of hospital care for months, the family had concerns about the long journey home. Nissin had already suffered severe pneumonia after his transplant. What if he got sick on the 2-day car ride home?
With the help of Delta Air Lines, Be The Match Foundation stepped in to get the family home safely. “The Delta plane ticket was very helpful and a relief. It brought us home safely in a few hours instead of a few days. After being away from home for months – you just want to get home,” said Sharon, Nissin’s mother. The family benefited from the Delta Air Lines SkyMiles® program which chose Be The Match Foundation as a SkyWish Charity Partner. When you fly Delta, you can donate your miles to help patients and their caregivers fly to and from transplant centers free of charge. To donate miles, call (800) 325-3999.

Be The One Run A touch of energy
“If this run can help save a life — it doesn’t have to be me, just save one person — wouldn’t that be wonderful?”
— Margaret, then a searching patient
Margaret positioned herself at the Be The One Run finish line to thank her team for running in her honor.
Margaret wasn’t about to miss this day. She was there at the finish line, complete with her surgical mask and blanket, ready to thank 60 friends, one by one, as they crossed the finish line in her honor.
In 2010, Be The Match piloted this fundraising run/ walk event in Atlanta, Ga. and Long Beach, Calif. We were overwhelmed by the response: Nearly 1,000 participants and $100,000 raised.
Her friends created “Team Margaret,” the first fundraising team to sign up for the first Be The One Run in Be The Match history. This Atlanta team profoundly illustrates what Be The One Run is all about: Giving hope to patients and Celebrating donors.
Participants included marrow transplant recipients, patients searching for a donor, researchers, doctors, nurses, family caregivers, contributors, registry members and families who had lost loved ones. They came together to celebrate one another.
Margaret, a wife, mother and 20-year U.S. Navy veteran, was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and needed a marrow transplant. But like 70 percent of patients in need of a transplant, Margaret had no matching marrow donor in her family.
With a 5K, 1K Fun Run and Tot Trot, Be The One Run is perfect for the entire family and for people of all fitness levels.
Margaret lost her battle while searching for a donor. She passed away a few days after the Be The One Run in Atlanta, but understood the significance of the event. “If this run can help save a life — it doesn’t have to be me, just save one person — wouldn’t that be wonderful?” said Margaret.
Through Be The Match Foundation, Be The One Run raises funds to support marrow transplant research, help patients with uninsured costs, and add more potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry — giving more patients hope for a cure. In 2011, Be The One Run is expanding to six cities: Minneapolis, Portland, Charlotte, Atlanta, Houston, and Long Beach. We hope to see you there. We can promise you an experience you will never forget.

Hendrick Marrow Program The NASCAR winning touch that saves lives When Jackson was only 5 months old, an emergency room doctor told his parents they needed a miracle — a donor so their son could have a marrow transplant. Working with Be The Match and the Hendrick Marrow Program, Jackson found a marrow match and in 2010 was able to meet the donor who made his miracle possible.
Shortly after that visit, Jackson’s recovery accelerated dramatically. Be The Match Foundation’s relationship with the NASCAR community is especially valuable to our patients and donors.
Little Jackson was born with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), a potentially fatal immune system disorder. Although his 2009 marrow transplant went well, Jackson suffered terrible complications.
The effort is led by Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, whose NASCAR team is made up of four Sprint Cup drivers: No. 88 driven by Dale Earnhardt Jr., No. 24 driven by Jeff Gordon, No. 48 driven by Jimmie Johnson, and No. 5 driven by Mark Martin.
For 15 months, Jackson’s family battled one health problem after another. The bright spot was a Hendrick Marrow Program fundraiser in May 2010 where Jackson first met his marrow donor, Jerald, a quiet and humble man from North Carolina.
Working with Be The Match Foundation, The Hendrick Marrow Program has raised more than $10 million, added more than 100,000 potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry, and eased the financial burden of uninsured treatment costs for more than 5,000 patients.
Teaming up with Pepsi and Jimmie Johnson Thanks to your votes, Be The Match Foundation won a $100,000 Pepsi Refresh Project grant to help financially vulnerable families afford the uninsured costs that come with a child’s marrow transplant. Pepsi invited three NASCAR drivers and their respective foundations to take part in this friendly competition. The driver who collected the most online votes in June 2010 won $100,000 for his charitable project. Jimmie Johnson, the five-time reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, and the Jimmie Johnson Foundation selected Be The Match Foundation’s Transplant Grants for Kids project. “I can’t imagine having to choose between being beside my child’s hospital bed or being at work in order to keep our insurance active and a roof over our heads,” Johnson said. “These grants give moms and dads a little less to worry about and give kids what they want most when they are sick — their parents by their bedside.”

You wouldn’t know it to look at him today, but the battle for Jackson’s life was long and rough. “He eats like a horse, plays hard, goes to pre-school a couple of days a week and has a motor on him that does not stop. If you were to put him in a lineup of 100 kids, you’d never know that he had been ill. We have really started living again and enjoying him.” — Jonathan, Jackson’s father

Research buys time for miracle Mike was diagnosed with an aggressive form of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) at the age of 62 and given 6 months to live. He was told he needed a marrow transplant but was too old to survive the procedure. Thanks to scientific advances and a lastminute donor, Mike is alive and well. Mike, a husband, father and grandfather from Oregon, took part in a clinical trial to develop safe marrow transplants for patients ages 50 to 65. Still, he had no marrow match in his family and there were no perfect matches for him on the marrow registry. Mikeâ€™s doctors decided to proceed with a less-than-ideal match. Four days before he was due to check into the hospital, a perfect match was found. â€œThe mood changed pretty quickly,â€? Mike said. Jennifer, a mother of three from Minnesota, had joined the registry and agreed to donate.
Taking it one step further Today, we are taking the study that helped Mike, and patients like him, one step further. We have launched a clinical trial to determine the effectiveness of transplant for MDS patients aged 65 and older. Each year, more than 15,000 patients are diagnosed with MDS in the United States, and 80 percent of these patients are 65 and older. Mike, with his donor, Jennifer
