A microproject by Advita Fund USA
40 bone marrow donors /40 chances to beat leukemia

Summary

The project will pay for the inclusion of 40 new bone marrow donors in the registry. Each of them will be able to save the life of a leukemia patient from all over the world in the future. New donors will be tested in a European laboratory according to an international standard and will be searchable for clinics from all over the world for decades.

Challenge

Thousands of leukemia patients around the world need a bone marrow donor cell transplant. However, the probability of finding a fully compatible donor for a particular patient is 1 in 1000, since the donor and the patient must have similar genetic HLA compatibility parameters. If a patient has a rare set of genes, it is often impossible to find a donor in existing donor registers, and the patient is unable to undergo a life-saving treatment.

Solution

We help find compatible donors for patients in need of bone marrow transplantation. The search for a donor uses databases of volunteers ready to save lives - bone marrow donor registries. The more donors, the greater the chances of finding a suitable one. The cost for a volunteer to complete medical procedures and become a potential donor is $30. We are launching a project to add 40 donors to the registry. Each of them is a new hope for life without leukemia!

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the project, you are investing in the health of patients for several generations ahead! If you donate $30 today, then in 3 months a young donor will be added to the donor database. It will be searchable for decades, until the donor reaches the age of 60. During the years in the registry, the donor may be found compatible with a patient with leukemia - an adult or a child. This may happen in decades, or maybe in a few months.
