Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2020, 11:59 PM

Hi! We are Team Panacea, a group of 4 Dunman High School students, consisting of Cheong Min, Reimi Ogawa Ho, Shermaine Lim and Tan Yi Xin, working on a Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes project. This project will support the Bone Marrow Donor Programme (BMDP), who manage and build Singapore's only public register of volunteer marrow donors. The BMDP provides hope for patients with leukaemia and other blood-related diseases who need a marrow transplant. When they go to the BMDP, these patients would already have exhausted all possible treatments, in addition to being unable to find a matching marrow donor within their household. The BMDP thus provides these patients with a second chance at life when they find a matching marrow donor.

With this project, we hope to be able to help the BMDP save more lives by clearing up any myths potential donors may have, thus encouraging more people to both sign up as marrow donors and donate financially in the long run.

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.
