Why you should register
There is a 20-30% chance that a matching donor can be found within a family, especially among siblings. Others depend on finding an unrelated matching donor.
Since chances of this are quite small - there are billions of combinations with tissue markers - it is important that as many potential blood stem cell donors as possible register.
Maybe you, with your specific tissue markers, are the right "type" and can give a new life to a seriously ill person!
That is important to know
Important aspects regarding registration and donation:
- Voluntary decision with no outside pressure
- Without payment
No entitlement to financial compensation
There is always, at any time, the option to withdraw a decision to donate blood stem cells.
In addition, there is anonymity between the donor and the patient.
Thank you for your registration.
