The project team at Project Crystal (ISG) hosted a blood stem cell registration event with the support of DKMS, a charity dedicated to the fight against blood cancer, with a mission to provide a matching donor for all blood cancer patients who need a blood stem cell donation.
DKMS’s mission is to increase the pool of available blood stem cell donors who could potentially save the lives of those people who are looking for a matching donor.
Last month ISG had over 80 people take part in testing, of which only 5% may be potential stem cell donors.
If they are able to donate stem cells the charity contact the participant and organise a blood donation at their closest centre.
