Dear friends, on Saturday, October 22nd, from 16 PM to 18 PM, in facilities of Cultural Center Galženica (Trg Stjepana Radića 5) in Velika Gorica, an action to join the Croatian Bone Marrow Donors Registry will be held.
The action in Velika Gorica is a sequel to a successful cooperation of Ana Rukavina Foundation with Mr. Mario Dilberović who already initiated and helped with organizing two actions of joining the Croatian Registry. Earlier actions on Mr. Dilberović’s initiative were held in 2014 – the first one in Velika Gorica and the second one at the Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation Sciences in Zagreb.
We will organise this action with a financial support of Zagreb county which awarded us with funds via Public tender for a project “The cure is in us” on the territory of Zagreb county.
All healthy citizens between the age of 18 and 40 can join the Croatian Registry. The process involves filling out a form and a health questionnaire, and giving out a blood sample for HLA typization which is used to determine antigens of tissue tolerance. Joining the Croatian Registry is the first step in helping people around the world diagnosed with acute or chronic form of leukemia, or people that have a severe damage of bone marrow.
Join us on Saturday in Velika Gorica!
