About The Event

Blood Stem Cell donations are life saving for people suffering from Cancer. If the right stem cells are donated to the patient, then the life expectancy increases by almost 85%. The donation is not at all complicated and it is as easy as blood platelet donation.

Unlike blood donation that can be used in the person with matching blood group, the stem donation cannot be used for every patient. If a donors white blood cells matches the type of the patient, only then the procedure can be done. Unfortunately, the matching is so rare that only 25% of the matches happen within the family member. The potential to find the matching Blood Stem in India is 1 to 20,000.

VFC through it's cause WAR(We Are Ready) along with BMST(Bangalore Medical Services Trust) have organized an awareness campaign to educate people about the merits of Blood Stem Cell Donation and encourage people to participate in the donation in order to save millions of lives of people, who are in dire need of stem cells.

Inviting YOU to be a part of the same and register as donor.
