What are the odds of getting a matched unrelated donor for BMT?

I don't know that they have specific odds. (although the registry says there is roughly one match for every 540 people on the registry) A match depends on a number of things. I know that there is a world-wide network though which increases the likelihood of finding a match. If you or your loved one is eligible for a bmt, then chances are your doctors are already searching for a donor on the registry. Have faith. All my best to you.
