Stem Cell Donation Pledge - Let's Gift Life
Time & Location
About The Event
We are looking for lifesavers! Interested?
Are you between the age of 18 to 50yrs? Come forward to register as a Stem Cell Donor with a simple cheek swab sample. If your HLA type matches with any patient across the world, YOU can save their life.
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. 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 Let's Gift Life (LGL) 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 a donor.
