The power of many to change!

Every year, thousands are diagnosed with blood diseases such as Leukaemia, and many of them die without a suitable stem cell transplant. They need $3 million each year to run the bone marrow matching programme and fund life-saving transplants for needy patients. BMDP pays $150 for each swab kit that they send to the lab for processing and uploading of the HLA makers onto the registry. You can help BMDP by sponsoring your own swab kit!

"I got introduced to BMDP through a volunteer Jeremy, and came to know that BMDP supports young kids who are suffering from blood cancer/ bone marrow related problems.

With continuous support through this initiative, many patients recovered steadily. I feel that I should support an organization which helps young kids hence I am nominating BMDP." - Nandakumar

About The Charity

Blood diseases such as Leukaemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma can strike any one at any time. When all other treatment has failed, a bone marrow transplant is their only chance of survival.

When patients are unable to find a matching donor within their family, they come to us in search of a Matched Unrelated Donor (MUD), who could give them a second chance at life. As finding a MUD means a healthy donor with the same DNA profile, the odds of finding that unique match is very low.

Thus since 1993, we at the Bone Marrow Donor Programme (BMDP) are committed to building and managing Singapore's only register of volunteer marrow donors. Providing hope for patients suffering from blood-related diseases.
