Robert and Laura Graves

The idea of what would become Be The Match started in Northern Colorado, with Dr. Bob Graves (father of Morning Fresh owner Rob Graves), who was searching for a marrow match for his daughter Laura.

Laura had a type of blood cancer, and one of her best prospects for survival was receiving a marrow transplant from someone with genes similar to hers. Unfortunately, none of Laura’s siblings were a suitable match, so Dr. Graves had the idea of finding a match from generous members of the medical and blood banking community who gave a blood sample in the hope of matching Laura. Eventually a match was found and Laura received her transplant, surviving for another 18 months.

Dr. Graves proved that a total stranger could provide a patient a marrow transplant, and in 1987 the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry (today called Be The Match) was created with funding by Congress and the Navy.

Today, Be The Match facilitates over transplants 6,000 patients needing what is potentially their lifesaving cure. You could be next donor to save a life, so please consider joining today.

Be The Match® is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts here at Morning Fresh Dairy Farm.

The idea of what would become Be The Match started in Northern Colorado, with Dr. Bob Graves (father of Morning Fresh owner Rob Graves), who was searching for a marrow match for his daughter Laura.

If you could save someone's life, would you do it?

Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia. For thousands of patients with blood cancer or other diseases like sickle cell anemia, a bone marrow transplant is their only hope for survival.

Sadly, 70 percent of patients don't have a fully-matched donor in their family.

That means they depend on Be The Match® to find an unrelated marrow donor who can help. With so many patients waiting for a match, we need as many people as possible to register, and we need registry members who are committed to helping save a life. If you're contacted as a match, you could be a patient's only hope for a cure.

Someone out there deserves a second chance. You could be the one to save them.

  • Are you between the ages of 18-44?*
  • Are you committed to donating to any patient in need?
  • Are you in good general health?

*Donors ages 45-60 may still join but will be asked to pay a tissue typing fee.
