Kevin was diagnosed with Sickle cell disease at the age of thirteen. Coming from God’s own country, he is now looking for a matched donor who can give him a second chance to live.
A patient only has a 25% chance of ﬁnding a donor from within the family. The majority of the patients have to depend on Unrelated Blood Stem Cell Donors. The probability of ﬁnding an unrelated matched donor is 1 in 10,000 to 1 in over a Million. You could say that 1 in a Million match is for someone who is gripping on to their life at the edge with hope.
We urge you to register as blood stem cell donors and give a second chance to Kevin and other patients waiting for their match.
