An action to join the Registry of voluntary hematopoietic stem cell donors will take place on Monday, May 13th from 10 AM to 12 PM at the premises of the University of Applied Health Studies at Mlinarska Cesta 38 (Hall 6) in Zagreb.
The action is being organized on the occasion of Nurses Day.
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).
Every potential donor may save someone’s life because bone marrow transplantation can treat patients suffering from acute and chronic forms of leukemia, as well as patients with severely damaged bone marrow. The motto of every action to join the Registry is – the cure is in us!
