WHY BECOME A DONOR?

You might be wondering “Why should I become a blood stem cell donor?” There might be several questions and doubts in your mind on how this step could help someone. It is best to know the facts and decide for yourself.

Blood cancer and Thalassemia are words that have the force to unsettle even the strongest and bravest. It is not just the diagnosis of the disease, but also the social perception and lack of awareness about its treatment which makes it difficult for the patient to overcome the disease. A blood stem cell transplant is most often the only cure for such disorders.

A patient only has a 25% chance of finding a donor from within the family. 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.

Take the first step. Register yourself as a potential blood stem cell donor.
