Become a Bone Marrow Donor

Who do we need as donors?

 

Every healthy person between 18 and 50 can be a donor. “Tissue-types” are inherited characteristics, used in matching donors and patients. The likelihood, therefore, of finding a suitable volunteer will be considerably greater within the same ethnic background. Accordingly all racial groups are welcome.

 

Why should I donate?

 

For many this is just unthinkable, but each year thousands of South Africans (mostly children and teenagers) have to face this terrifying reality.
Fortunately,. life threatening blood disorders such as leukemia, aplasia, immune deficiencies, inborn errors of metabolism and other new indications such as auto-immune disorders can now be treated.
Treatment, however entails a bone marrow/stem cell transplant from a willing donor and although it is sometimes possible for relatives to offer the closest matches, 75% of patients will not have a suitable sibling and will have to start their search for a matching non-related donor.
