September 16th 2017 is World Marrow Donor Day!
WHY WORLD MARROW DONOR DAY?
To thank all donors worldwide; Unrelated donors, family donors, cord blood donors, donors who already have donated, and donors who are on the global registry waiting to donate. To raise awareness among the general public and decision-makers about being a stem cell donor and the impact of blood stem cell transplantation on patients’ live.
WHAT IS A MARROW DONOR?
A marrow or blood stem cell donor is a volunteer adult person who is willing to donate cells for blood stem cell or marrow transplantation. Some donate to a family member, others donate to a patient somewhere in the world and who is not a family member.
