COVID-19 has stopped our normal daily lives. But blood diseases like Leukaemia and Lymphoma do not stop with COVID-19 -- It continues to strike anyone at any time or age.

Every day, 6 Singaporeans continue to be diagnosed with such blood-related diseases and when all other treatment has failed, a bone marrow transplant is their last chance of survival.

Urgent bone marrow transplants must still take place. Patients with already weakened immunities cannot wait till a better time when the COVID pandemic is over to safely proceed. Their LIVES TODAY simply DEPEND ON this life-saving transplant.

Needy patients have a greater emotional burden and worry if they will still be able to get the financial subsidies needed for their bone marrow transplant and post-transplant recovery. (Transplant costs start from at least S$70,000).

Please help ensure that patients are not forgotten in times of crisis. Dedicated teams and volunteers in BMDP are overcoming the ever-changing obstacles such as new hospital guidelines; logistic barriers and lockdowns by countries; safety precautions when meeting marrow donors, etc. -- All towards the mission of ensuring marrow donors are safe and patients receive the healthy life-saving gift of stem cells/ bone marrow in critical time.

Your donation gives much hope to our patients.

Please support them and help continue the work of finding a marrow donor for every patient -- together LET US UNITE and SAVE LIVES together! #SGUnited #Solidarity

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.
