Dear friends, on Thursday, September 15th, from 10AM to 12AM, in Red Cross’ City Association of Slavonski Brod, an action to join the Croatian Bone Marrow Donor Registry will be held.
The action will be held on the initiative from “Slap” association from Slavonski Brod. “Slap” association is a humanitarian organization that brings together parents and family members of children who suffer from rare and malign conditions. Their wish is to make their fellow citizens aware of the importance of helping sick people in their search for a matching donor.
We remind you that to enter the Registry, you have to be between 18 and 40 years old. The process includes filling the form and a health questionnaire, as well as giving a sample of your blood for HLA-typization that determines the antigens of tissue tolerance. Entering the Registry is the first step for helping people with acute and chronic forms of leukemia or a damaged bone marrow.
For all of you who won’t be able to join us at this action, you can check the list of transfusion centers in Croatia that are permanently opened for joining the Registry.
