  1. What is OneMatch all about?
  2. The OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network is responsible for finding and matching volunteer donors to patients who require stem cell transplants.

    Fewer than 25 percent of patients who need stem cell transplants find a compatible donor within their own family. The other 75 percent rely on those who have volunteered to donate stem cells to anyone in need.
