Summary

Many of the former Soviet Union countries lack national bone marrow donor registries. The patients have to pay thousands of euros for the donor search abroad, harvesting of the stem cells and their delivery to the hospitals. Our goal is to help 20 low-income patients a year.

Challenge

Many of the former Soviet Union countries lack their own bone marrow donor registries. Cancer patients who need the transplants have to pay out of pocket for the donor search abroad, collection of bone marrow, and delivery of transplant. The majority of the cancer patients are unable to afford the donor searches, which delays transplants and worsens outcome.

Solution

Our contribution to the cost of donor searches will allow starting donor searches timely and will help patients have better chances to overcome cancer.

Long-Term Impact

Improved survival of cancer patients who undergo bone marrow transplantations.
