5,000,000 potential blood stem cells donors now recruited

26 January 2015

We and our sister charities in Germany, Poland, Spain and the United States have collectively now recruited 5,000,000 potential blood stem cells donors!

The five millionth potential donor is Norbert Rękawek, a young man from Poland who has just turned 18. He has just registered at an event in Warsaw.

5,000,000 potential blood stem cell donors is a great achievement, but there are millions more people who are eligible to register as potential blood stem cell donors, so there is so much more to do.

Too many don’t realise that they might be the only person in the world who has a matching tissue-type to a patient who needs a blood stem cell donation for their survival, and that they alone could save them.
