Next week, on Tuesday, May 7th, two actions to join the Registry of voluntary hematopoietic stem cell donors will be held. The first will take place in Vrbovec from 9 AM to 11 AM at the premises of HNS Vrbovec at Buban 10. The second will take place in Sisak from 2 PM to 4 PM at the Sisak Retirement Home at Oktavijana Augusta 3.
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).
The motto of every action to join the Registry is – the cure is in us! 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.
Join us at the 212th and 213th actions to join the Registry because every new potential donor increases the survival chances of those people who are suffering!
