Dear friends, the first action of the year to join the Registry of voluntary hematopoietic stem cell donors will be held in Sveta Nedelja at the company Otto Bock Adria d.o.o. (Dr. Franje Tuđmana 14) on Friday, January 16th from 11 AM to 1 PM.
We are organizing the action at the initiative of the employees of Otto Bock Adria d.o.o. and with the goal of helping three year old Niko Bratonić of Bregana who has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.
Niko’s further treatment requires a bone marrow transplant and the search for a suitable non-related donor is currently underway.
Come, join the Registry and increase the chances of treating those suffering from leukemia, lymphoma, and other severe bone marrow diseases, especially brave, young Niko.
For all of you who cannot participate in this action to join the Registry, we would like to remind you that you can join the Registry at the Clinical Hospital Center Zagreb (Rebro), Department of Tissue Typing (green building, basement, room 9), every working day from 8 AM to 2 PM, as well as at the transfusion centers.
All healthy people between the ages of 18 and 40 can join the Registry by filling in an application form and a medical questionnaire and giving a blood sample for HLA tissue typing (the procedure for determining the tissue compatibility antigen). Those who have already been listed as potential donors do not need to join again.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible!
