More information about joining

 - Eligibility criteria applies

- Joining the Australian Bone Marrow Donor registry is free and if you are match, donating your stem cells does not cost anything either

- Only 1 in 1500 Australians are a match in any given year so you will not be called regularly

- Your blood sample will be sent to the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry, where it will "tissue typed" (given its unique code) and made searchable worldwide to potentially match a patient's unique code and become their life saving match

- Find out more about what's involved if you ever became someone's life-saving match. Donating stem cells is much easier these days and not as scary as it sounds!
