Public Be The Match Public Public & Family
Jeevan (also known as BeTheCure.in) is the first purely public cord blood bank set up in India, funded by a tie-up with the state of Tamil Nadu, that enables quick and affordable (free for the poor) access to matching stem cells from donated umbilical cord blood for the life-saving treatment of Indians with blood cancers, thalassaemia, and other blood disorders.
