Dear friends, next week you can expect another two actions to join the Registry of voluntary donors of hematopoietic stem cells in Zagreb.
On Tuesday, March 3rd, from 10 AM to 12 PM, we will hold an action for the employees at INA’s headquarters, INA-Industrija Nafte d.d. (Avenija V. Holjevca 10), in Hall 3 on the mezzanine level. On Thursday, March 5th, from 11 AM to 1 PM, we will be at the Stjepan Radić Student Dorm (Jarunska 2) and we invite you to join us at this action for students.
The action on Tuesday is being held at the initiative and with the help of the employees of INA d.d. from 10 AM to 12 PM. The action at the Stjepan Radić Student Dorm is being held at the initiative of students Lucija Ivandić and Anamarija Zanić. With this action they would like to encourage as many young people as possible to join the Registry in order to help 27 year old Jurica Antolić. Two years after being treated, Jurica’s leukemia has returned and now he needs a bone marrow transplant.
Together with our organizers we invite you to these two actions to join the Registry so you can increase the chances of treating all those who are suffering and are searching for a non-related donor. Come join us. Maybe you are that donor!
All healthy people between the ages of 18 and 40 can join the Registry and by joining they contribute to saving the lives of patients with acute and chronic forms of leukemia and patients with severe bone marrow damage. The process to join the Registry includes filling in an application form and a medical questionnaire and giving a blood sample for HLA tissue typing which is the procedure for determining the tissue compatibility antigen.
We are looking forward to these new actions and hope to see you next Tuesday and Thursday!
