Stem cell donation

Potential second donations

In rare cases, we may ask you to donate stem cells a second time.

Last updated: 20/06/2022

Why a second donation?

We may ask you if you would be willing to make a second stem cell donation if:

• the transplanted stem cells have not yet multiplied and developed successfully in the patient’s body.
• the patient: has suffered a relapse.
• the patient’s body is rejecting the transplanted stem cells.
• the patient needs another stem cell donation, or stem cell boost, to accelerate the restoration of their immune system.

Your second donation could be vital to the patient’s survival. If you are available to help us a second time around, we would like to thank you most sincerely.

How it works

Any second donation usually tends to be smaller than the first.

Your second stem cell donation will normally be made at the same collection clinic as the first one. Our highly trained staff will be ready to assist at any time and will organise everything on your behalf.

If you have any questions about making a second donation, please contact us at any time.
